Exhibiting now - Still Lives

ARTIS GALLERY 25 AUGUST - 14 SEPTEMBER 2020

Still-life painting is a curious discipline of observation combined with technical capability. The genre harks back to the middle ages and draws our attention to everyday objects we might find within the domestic setting eg, fruit, crockery, vases, shot game etc. In fact, 'still lifes' invariably have very little 'life' left in them at all. In this series of 6 works, I explore the traditional conventions of 'still life' painting with a just a little more 'life' than one is normally accustomed to. These paintings ask the viewer to suspend disbelief and to immerse themselves into the 'still living'.
