mixed media on paper
18" x 24"
Framed size is 23" x 29". Antique bottles and other objects from the kitchen make wonderful subjects for still-life paintings because of their beautiful shapes and colors. I really enjoyed painting these objects with abstract collage and negative shape painting. The white horizontal lines are used to balance the strong verticals created by the objects.
Among the first to start abstracting still life scenes were Paul C?zanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin. As artists experimented with new forms of abstraction, still life painting became a favored genre that let them play with various arrangements of textures, shapes, and colors.
