Felicitas Vogler

Studio Still Life with Clear Bottle

About this artwork

This unusual photograph by Vogler shows two pieces of work by her husband, the artist Ben Nicholson, combined into a still life arrangement. Although more noted for her landscape photographs taken during her travels, this work does embody her interest in abstract patterns and unusual compositions. In her positioning of the camera, Vogler distorts the perspective and makes the foreground out of focus. The clear glass bottle continues this idea of distortion by slightly warping the line in Nicholson’s work behind it.
