Parafin presents a major new body of work by Justin Mortimer at the Armory Show, New York. Widely regarded as one of the leading figurative painters working today and an emblematic figure for a younger generation of artists. Mortimer is an artist who has consistently pursued a particular vision and way of working independently of the vagaries of fashion.
The Hoax series consists of 30 paintings, technically stunning images of dead and dying flower arrangements – literally nature morte – set against painterly abstract backgrounds. In these works Mortimer subverts the traditions of the still life and the vanitas and explores the tensions between the photographic image, painterly realism and abstraction.
A fully illustrated book of the series has been published by Anomie Publishing.
