Although the French refer to still life as “nature morte” meaning “dead life,” the art form generally means a collection of still objects that had been alive, such as fruit, cut flowers or dead animals, thus “still life.” Over the centuries this genre has evolved to include most any collection of inanimate objects, whether or not portrayed realistically.  It is common for artists to learn still life drawing or painting early on in their studies. So whether it is an artwork from your past or a new project, bring out your still life paintings or drawings and celebrate this art form that has endured throughout history.

These collages create a micro-narrative from posters, books and drawings. The landscape features familiar but unrecognizable forms, generating pulp sensations of seduction, unease and climactic tension. The works are a conscious acceptance of colliding images and ideas.
