September #Phillips95: Photo or Painting?

Things aren’t always as they appear. This month’s #Phillips95 challenge focuses on slow and careful looking. Do you think the below work, a recent acquisition for the museum’s permanent collection, is a painting or a photograph? Comment on this blog post or any of our social media posts with your guess to be entered into a drawing to win a Phillips prize pack (including two tickets to the museum and goodies from the museum shop!). We’ll select a winner from the correct answers tomorrow, Friday, September 30. We’ll also reveal the artist and title.


Guess the medium! Painting or photo?

Update: If you guessed photograph, you are correct! This work, Peaches and Blackberries (2008) is by artist Sharon Core and is a chromogenic print. Congrats to our winners Livia N. and Jill K. Check back next month for more chances to win prizes.
