Stilleven is Guido Mocafico's interpretation of the great Dutch and German still-life paintings of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. By painstakingly reconstructing banquet and floral scenes as well as vanitas still-lifes by artists such as Floris van Dijck and Pieter Claesz, Mocafico not only duplicates these paintings but brings them back to life. Using a large-format analogue camera with color transparencies, Mocafico creates brilliant images with the highest degree of verisimilitude. Mocafico's triumph, however, is not only recreating the appearance of things, but his restaging of the devout atmosphere of these paintings. Limited edition of 300 copies signed and numbered by the artist.
