The humble still life is the trojan horse of painting. They appear to be a simple image of some objects, on a table, in a corner of a room, but I find them to be arenas for sophisticated and painterly explorations. Still Lifes are grounded in the everyday, but the everyday can make a huge impact when given the full and undivided attention of an artistic eye. There is a long tradition of Still Lifes becoming radical works of art (think: Cezanne’s apples, Cubist tabletops, Warhol’s soup cans). For me, my Still Lifes are rooted in color and texture, and the transformative nature of each when juxtaposed against each other.
