Artwork Description

Still life contrasts with our lives today which are dynamic, moving and constantly shifting, so there is definitely a strange irony in my work. I’m forced and hopefully I make the viewer stop and look at the beauty and complexity of an object. There should always be time for this in our lives, to take in the beauty that surrounds us.

There is plenty of symbolism from the pear that is a reminder of longevity to the crow with all it’s mystery and connotations of death. The blue ribbon is a transition through time.

I’m trying to suspend time, but it is still a reminder of our mortality, transience, and that things will fade and pass. Time becomes precious.
