Artwork Description

Signed on the back.

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.

"Silver Jug and the Roses" is one in a series of still life paintings that feature a piece of origami, and other everyday objects. In this painting a rose sits inside a silver milk jug with a rose bud and a paper crane alongside, reflecting in the silver jug. The flower represents natural beauty, the silver represents memory and perceptions, often warped by time or individuality, and the paper crane represents wisdom and creativity through experience.

Oil on canvas, framed in Tasmanian oak.
