David Halliday
Clam Shells (Framed Still Life Photograph of Blue/White Shells with Drift Wood)

2007

About the Item

Clam Shells (Still Life Photograph of Blue/White Shells with Drift Wood) by David Halliday 10 X 15 inches, 17 x 22.5 inches framed Color Work Series archival pigment print edition #2 of 25 In this series, Halliday captures the beauty of everyday life in still lifes of various objects and vegetation arranged against simple backgrounds. This seaside still life of deep blue and white clam shells beside a piece of drift wood is set on a concrete surface in front of a cream colored plaster wall. The subtle color palette extenuates the various textures and gentle shadows cast on the objects. About the artist: American, b. 1958, Glen Cove, NY, United States, based in Schodack Landing, NY, United States Elegant still lifes bathed in natural light, so masterfully composed one could forget that it is, in fact, a photograph – this is how we’ve come to recognize David Halliday’s work. The artist first gained recognition for his sepia toned silver gelatin prints of common place objects and food staples, emphasized by sublime balances of form, texture, and shadow one could liken to classical painting. In more recent years the artist began embracing his subject matter with modern pops of color in surreal arrangements; vegetables and fruits eccentrically coupled with fish nets and cutlery balanced on undefined tabletops, seeming to float in midair. Now the photographer is retracting his lens to encompass the studio itself as his subject. In a self-portrait of sorts, Halliday skillfully combines elements of his craft in a modest interior view. Halliday was one of the first artists Carrie Haddad began representing when she opened the gallery 27 years ago. Since then he has exhibited nationally and in Europe. He now lives and works in Schodack Landing by way of New Orleans and Nantucket.

  • Bread House (Framed Food Still Life Photograph of Bread, Vegetables & Stones)
    By David Halliday
    Located in Hudson, NY
    Contemporary food still life photograph of bread with assorted vegetables on a wood table Archival pigment print, ed. 9 of 25 Image size: 11 x 14 inches 17 x 21 inches with dark wood frame with non-glare glass and 8-ply white mat Halliday captures the beauty of a traditional still life with a contemporary spin. Here three loaves of bread are balanced on one another, beside blueberries, stones, squash, tomatoes, and legumes against a black background. The entwined green legumes and the bread's rough surface provides intriguing texture, while the delicately positioned white stones and blueberries lend brilliant color and shape. The contemporary still life is placed against a solid black background. The print #9 a limited edition of 25, is currently framed in a dark wood frame with non-glare glass and an 8-ply white mat. The artist's signature is located on the back and front. About the Artist: David Halliday's photographs are about beauty, pure and simple. His primary subjects are carefully composed still lifes, portraits and landscapes which he shoots in black and white film with only natural light. He is a purist behind the lens, rarely manipulating his negatives in any way, and a master in the darkroom. His work has an ethereal quality that's translated not only through the subject, but also by the warm colors and sepia tones he uses in his printing. More about the work: A master of light, David Halliday produces lush and elegant images that are both classical and modern. Celebrated for his ‘purist’ eye, he poetically captures the nude male body in a selection of sepia-toned prints from 1996. Rarely revealing the model's face, Halliday prefers to focus on the natural drape of limbs, soft folds of flawless skin, and curvature of the spine. Overall, a stunningly intimate portrayal of the male form done with elegance and charm.
