Vanitas

The Fabric of Night

 

Peter Honig is a Santa Barbara, CA photographer and assemblage artist whose work humorously explores themes of mortality, the nature of self-reflection, human relationships, and the passage of time. Working from a large collection of found objects amassed over two decades, the artist finds expressive possibilities arising from a mass of inanimate debris, creating small tableaux, which he then photographs. The resulting large-scale still life images, miniature models of consciousness, resonate with dark humor and offer entry into an elegantly ordered interior world.
