Whether of the ocean or prairie -- Ben Shattuck's still life paintings show a keen awareness of the way light hits the glass of a bell jar -- but also, a real understanding of just how fragile our environment is.
He writes 'The Cod' series underscores "a relevant and pressing environmental issue: the devastation of cod populations along the eastern seaboard. To paint a still life of a fish today means something very different than it did 300 years ago."
Ben Shattuck (b. 1984) is a graduate Cornell University’s College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, and of University of Iowa’s Iowa Writers’ Workshop.
