Beth Lipman‘s work pays homage to still life paintings from the 17th–20th centuries. Still lifes can be contemplated on a purely atheistic level, or they can be interpreted on a political, moral or theological level and were usually influenced by economic or socio-cultural events. Instead of striving for illusionary perfection, the glass process is used to record Lipman’s ability to control the material at that moment. In its most recent manifestation, the glass still life is reduced to a photograph. Lipman makes the glass, creates the composition, and uses photography to capture the moment (see image on back cover). Afterwards, the glass is destroyed or recycled.
