BRETT’S STILL LIFE by Dan Winters

1,000.00

What began as a still life to occupy the main page of Brett’s website has since become an icon of the work he and his beloved collaborators created together. Brett and Dan Winters composed the image at Dan’s studio in Driftwood, Texas in 2011. In his 2014 book Road to Seeing, Dan recounted his experience creating the photograph, which he considers “a beautiful celebration of all that Brett accomplished in his career” and one of their most satisfying collaborations.

 

"We began by organizing the items on a large layout table in my studio. One by one we began to build layers, pulling items from all over my studio and combining them with his work. It felt like a dance; we spoke very little as we placed items in the set with great reverence. All the while I was documenting the process and frequently needed to airbrush items that stood out in order to bring them into a value range compatible with the overall image. After several hours or positioning, repositioning, and adding and subtracting objects, we felt as though we’d finished. When complex sets are involved, it’s often the case that I experience a distinct sadness when we begin to demolish them, as so much love and care goes into the construction of these magical worlds."

 

Choose any size print up to 16x20 and pay one price of $1,000, with all of the proceeds, after printing costs, going directly to the scholarship fund, thanks to Dan’s generous contribution. All prints are signed by Dan Winters and shipped, unframed, direct from his studio.
