David Berezin’s Reconstructed Stock Photo Still Lifes

There’s more than one way to take a still life. San Francisco-based artist David Berezin, whose work we first spotted over at Beautiful/Decay, creates imaginary still lifes by pulling apart various lo-res stock photos he finds on Google Images and stitching them back together in an imitation of commercial photography. His unusual juxtapositions are subtle jokes, challenging our expectations as to which items should be presented together and exposing the clichés of popular culture and advertising. Click through to check out a few of our favorite reconstructed stock photo still lifes, and then if you’re in the area, make sure to stop by the L.A. gallery Royal T, where Berezin’s artwork will be on display in The Art of Cooking until August 1st.
