In colloquial language, a ‘double take’ refers to a delayed reaction to something unexpected, immediately after one’s first reaction, and to adopt a different perspective about something. It literally means to «look twice». With a deep understanding of art history, as well as of classic and contemporary culture, the two artists have created 12 images that demonstrate a sophisticated questioning about the photographic medium and still lives as a genre.

Core draws from widely known paintings, which she carefully reproduces on paper. Beyond what they may look like —mere copies— they are conceptual explorations about the role of photography in comprehending and visualizing paintings. Letinsky, using a very different approach, incorporates cutouts from fashion, publicity and art magazines into her artworks. Together, these artists present an entirely contemporary take on a genre that still endures, where emotions give meaning to the depicted objects.
