Where to buy...Paulette Tavormina

A select exhibition in a private gallery

Paulette Tavormina offers feasts for the eyes. The New York City–based photographer has a background as a commercial food stylist, yet her ongoing series “Natura Morta” evokes the still lifes of such 17th-century masters as Francisco de Zurbarán, Adriaen Coorte, and Giovanna Garzoni. In her studies of fruits and flowers, Tavormina brings every lush detail into focus in a way that would seem impossible with a camera. But before you’re tempted to dig in to the produce in, say, 2010’s Peaches and Morning Glories (shown above), note the crawling presence of a butterfly, ladybug, and green beetle. Even in these meticulously arranged displays, life never really remains still. At Robert Klein Gallery, 38 Newbury St., Boston, (617) 267-7997. Prices range from $2,000 to $9,000.
