Jan Groover abandoned painting for photography and puts a painter’s sense of composition into her series of photographic Kitchen Still Lifes. Groover uses the reflection off the metals of her cutlery and steel bowls to give off painterly effects of light and dark, and shadow. The photos are cropped close-ups of a mix of utensils and produce, often larger than life. Groover sometimes incorporates mirrored elements to further increase the depth of the usually simple objects.
