My current work is influenced by Baroque painting, with it’s exaggerated and theatrical tenebrism and hightened and dramatic emotional content. The implicit goal is to contemporize the baroque method of painting with still lifes whose subject matter are expressive of current tastes and commerce.
For example, many Baroque still lifes were highly metaphorical and aspirational, consisting of flowers that were rare and seasonally out of synch.
My floral still lives are just as opulent and not likely to occur together in nature, yet they readily available, thanks to international commerce. What they also have in common with their inspirations is that they are vanitas; reminders of beauty’s inevitable decay.
