annet van der voort

tulipa + vanitas

18 march - 10 april 2010

Annet van der Voort is a Dutch photographer now living in Germany, whose work often centres around the themes of life and death.

Her scanograms of Tulipa and Vanitas are a modern variation of the floral still-life painting of Hollandís Golden Age. The complicated scanning process creates richly coloured images floating on a black background, with flowers so life-like they belie a two dimensional surface.

Annet often combines fresh and decaying flowers with insects, all common subjects in traditional vanitas. Vanitas were popular subject matter with the Dutch master painters during the 16th Century, but the symbolism dates back beyond Medieval times. It reminds the viewer that everything will age and decay, that ultimately life and vanity is meaningless and that there is no escaping death.

Annetís depictions of tulips similarly have their roots in Dutch history. Although not native to Europe, tulips were introduced in the early 17th Century and Hollandís upper class soon were competing for the rarest varieties, with some species selling for more than the value of a large house in Amsterdam.

Annet has been exhibiting professionally since 1990 and her photographs can be found in several publications and international collections.
