Artwork Description

“Hearts aflutter” is an ode to the long tradition of Dutch still life painting. Emerging out of the void the subjects allude to the transitory nature of existence; to life and death. It is time suspended.

Still life asks us to stop and consider the familiar, simply seeing and then hopefully discovering further depths of hidden wonder within it. It urges us to look more closely as we passively observe, something rarely done anymore. Still life contrasts with our lives today - dynamic and frenetic, always moving and constantly shifting.
