This kind of still life is a very popular subject in a board room a library, a private office, a mans den or close to the liquor cabinet. This does not mean that no other spaces have been found in private homes. There are a good number of 17th century artist that had painted related compositions and are often spotted in the national galleries the world over. Possibly the most masculine type of decent art a man can relate to and at my past exhibitions one of the most popular themes.

All art by Jos Kivits

Just a few objects found in the house of a deceased uncle who was reading the paper while having his last smoke from the Ming tobacco pot (which lid is invisible behind the box.  The box with some small personal trinkets, a small checkered  pill box,  and an empty red glass flower vase, as he was a widower and did not like to see dying flowers in his house anymore. The feeling of holding something in your hands that is hundred of years old, like the pewter and the ceramic Japanese vase, gives me a feeling of agelessness. It vibrates through my entire body and to spend weeks painting something like this climaxes to an explosion in my imagination. A painting of this calibre is and always will be an eye catcher when people realise it has not been created with shortcuts and tricks, but genuinely by discipline and artistry without smoke and mirrors.
