ILLUSORY BOUNTY • There is both decadence and fragility in the
still lifes our guest designers created from New England’s bountiful harvest.
Inspired by the works of 16th- and 17th-century Flemish Baroque artists
like Frans Snyders and Adriaen van Utrecht, they explore what one
contributor calls the “delicate threshold from life to death” as we pluck our
fruits and flowers. The eerie beauty of the darkness of the settings reminds
us that as the days grow shorter, the light becomes all the more poignant.
