The Perfect Life series

The Perfect Life series of paintings originally developed as a  spontaneous and direct response to the seductive photographic narratives frequently encountered in many mainstream mail order  catalogues.

Further process of investigation led to the realisation of a reciprocity between the composition of Vermeer paintings and commercial still  life photography, which reveals the commercial photographer  adopting the distinctive & alluring methodology of the Dutch artist in  order to inform the creation of the still life.

In The Perfect Life series, Rebecca Scott seeks to complete the  circle of transformation, this time returning the photograph to painting while meticulously re­appropriating the manufactured language of consumer desire and thus “producing” the “perfect”  painting.
