Persian Peacock

40 h x 57 w x 1 l

DESCRIPTION: large framed still-life photograph creates an environment similar to that of early 17th century Dutch paintings, except the objects displayed on this table are all of Persian origin.

ARTIST STATEMENT: This series of still-life photos began with my fascination with Dutch still-life paintings, in particular Pieter Claesz's work. Besides the aesthetic question, the more I looked at them the more I wanted to understand the reason the artists chose a certain angle over another? Why place certain objects in the vicinity of one another? From these studies grew a series of still-life photographs that took my own themes. The affect I am after is completely decorative.
