  • Catalogue Essay

    Early American, Still Life with Balsam Apples" (2010) was commissioned to celebrate Lincoln Center’s 50th anniversary. The work is a part of Core’s ongoing Early American series, which began in 2007. In this series Core takes the works of 19th century still life artist Raphaelle Peale (1774-1825) and re-creates his old-master-style paintings as photographs. To create this picture, Core grew her own fruits, vegetables, and flowers from heirloom seeds to better resemble natural forms from early nineteenth-century America. In addition she collected porcelain and glass from the period, many pieces being identical to those found in the original paintings.
