Description

Resting, 2020, is a unique artist made digital archival print on fiber-based exhibition paper, an edition of 1. Framed in a mahogany finish frame with 4-ply cream rag mat. Tomato Mouse is thrilled to present R. Carroll’s first New York solo exhibition of photographs; still. Twelve concise still lifes are framed within wooden boxes. Flowers, vegetables, a bird, a skull and simple objects are rendered with the intensity of painting and colors that emerge from the surface with startling insistence. The quiet austerity of these compositions records the touch of half alive textures, the comfort of the imperfect physical world. Velvety decadent material and alluring chroma upon close inspection reveal pores, bruises, wilts, asymmetrical clefts, surprising in today’s world of glossed, filtered and algorithmically perfected faces and monoculture produce. Neither nature morte nor momento mori, the artist’s composing of the scene within an explicit frame harmonizes processes of order and disorder, assembly and dispersal. You might want to freeze time at its most perfect or you might declare this moment perfect.
