Anat Shiftan creates ceramic three-dimensional Still Life and centerpieces. Historically, Still Life depicts arranged elements from nature, life in the outdoors of the domestic world, and leans on the symbolic agency of these items to suggest a critique of the human condition. Inspired by the power of still life and the role of the centerpiece in domestic life, Anat creates arrangements that echo this history. She asks the viewer to question the legacy of nature, the botanical, and our material culture.
