Change of season, change of tables. We created a series of images paying homage to one of our favourite contemporary realist painter, David Ligare (born in Oak Park, Illinois in 1945).
Ligare often focuses on the subject of the ancient Greek and Roman practices of giving thanks to the gods by offering them a portion of the “first-fruits” of their harvest. Ligare bathes his subjects in golden light and stages them in dramatic altar-like spaces that follow the ancient format of reverence and gratitude – gratitude for the bounty of the harvest and the sheer beauty of nature. We are obsessed!
