Scheltens & Abbenes for The Gentlewoman, Pockets


The work of Dutch artists Maurice Scheltens & Liesbeth Abbenes deals not just with still life, but with the medium of photography itself. Combining their distinct but overlapping fields of expertise, Scheltens (a photographer) & Abbenes (a tapestry artist) meticulously arrange objects into configurations that have a strong two-dimensional or graphic character. Central to their work, however, is the search for a transformative perspective – one which asks questions about how we see things both in life and through photography.
