A sea shell, collected on Hatteras Island the day after a storm, sits by my bedside to remind me of a summer vacation. I especially need that reminder on gray winter days. In addition to the sea shell is a rock, the smooth cool texture is a nice counterpoint to the rusty tin jar that I found in an abandoned house - I love the turquoise color of the jar. And, books, I always have to have books at hand - like dear friends books are always welcome.
A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on). With origins in the Middle Ages and Ancient Greek and Roman art, still life paintings give the artist more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition than do paintings of other types of subjects such as landscape or portraiture. Still life paintings, particularly before 1700, often contained religious and allegorical symbolism relating to the objects depicted. Some modern still life breaks the two-dimensional barrier and employs three-dimensional mixed media, and uses found objects, photography, computer graphics, as well as video and sound.
Just like the painter, a photographer arranges objects into a composition and then takes a photograph of the arrangement - this allows the photographer to control the narrative of their picture.
I hope you will consider acquiring one of my photographs for your personal enjoyment or as a gift.
