Still-lives are like little stage sets that you get to design from all the stuff you collect. Some of mine are fairly straight forward while others are imbued with a kind of cryptic, personal symbolism subtly revealed by the deliberate selection and arrangement of particular objects. There is a sense of ordered chaos to the tightly constructed compositions. This can range from the ominous to the light-hearted depending on my intention at the moment of execution.
