Still Life


Franko B’s work focusses on the visceral, where the body is a canvas and an unmediated site for the representation of the sacred, the beautiful, the untouchable, the unspeakable and for the pain, love, the hate, the loss, the power and the fears of the human condition. This book considers the notions of ‘Still Life’, from a range of formal and conceptual perspectives; the ‘Still Life’ of Fine Art traditions, the ‘Still Life’ of the artist’s body as sculpture, the ‘Still Life’ of sleep and the ‘Still Life’ of a life that seems to go nowhere.
