PANTONE AFTERNOON TEA, WENDY VAN SANTEN.

In the XVIIth century still life painting were realistic, dark and even visceral; in that time what prevailed in the Arts was the commonly accepted style. And if before, in the Baroque times, what amazed and made wigs shake was watching a still life of apples, now what amazes us (and makes some wigs shake a little) is watching a broccoli covered in thousands of sweets on a plain background. Wendy Van Santen shows us, through her photography, her world of colour and irony. This Amsterdam based artist is, and we’re aware of that, a perfect example of the aesthetic trend that is now in a peak in every artistic field. Are we going back to witnessing the commonly accepted? Yes, but with people like Van Santen, we might as well!
