The two works by Gersht in the collection are from a 2007 series of photographic works entitled 'Time after Time'. For this the artist used sophisticated digital technology to capture 1/6000th of a second images of contrived explosions of elaborate flower arrangements. The works refer to the flower studies and vanitas paintings of Fantin-Latour and other European masters of still life painting which contain implied references to death and decay. Gersht brings these themes into a contemporary context, highlighting tensions between creation and destruction, beauty and violence.
