Artwork Description

Oil Paint on wood

Signed on the back.

This artwork comes with an external frame

My work has been highly influenced by the world of commercial art and graphic design. This translates to my art in many ways. My still life paintings are careful composition full of allegories, which capture a moment in time where all represented items are meaningful beyond the composition.

"Paper Crane Tea Party" is one in a series of still life paintings that feature origami cranes, and other everyday objects that pay homage to the nostalgic memories of life.

The silver tea set is not something people generally use today, but may have in their cabinet as a family heirloom. I love the reflective nature if the silver, how it warps the image, like memories themselves.
