About

archival pigment print, edition 2 of 25
24 x 28 in whitewashed wood frame

This archival pigment print of green tomatoes and a tan oil can resting on a vintage wooden surface was created by photographer David Halliday. The still life of everyday objects is positioned against a grey-green background. As with many of his culinary-themed still lifes, Halliday here works with an asymmetric yet balanced composition, with the oil can resting diagonally against the bunch of green tomatoes. The final image is simple yet sophisticated.

The photograph is complimented by a whitewashed wood frame, with a wire across the back for easy, professional-quality hanging.

About the artist:
David Halliday first gained renown for his sepia-toned silver prints of elegant, meticulously-composed still lifes. His more recent color work maintains the same intimate and simple beauty but also creates a visceral connection for the viewer. Like a painter, he emphasizes volumes, balances, texture and areas of subtle shading.

Born in Glen Cove, New York in 1958, Halliday attended Syracuse University and pursued further studies under the tutelage of Arnold Newman. He has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. In 2002, the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans exhibited a retrospective of his work and in 2012, he exhibited at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans. Halliday’s work is included in numerous public and private collections including the New Orleans Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the New Britain Museum of Art.
