Still Life: Patriotic Ikebana


I wnated to inject in this still life a sense of conflict, peace, remembrance, humility and hope. 


In redifining the Still Life (Nature Morte) tradition for the present day. I use present day mediums of creating images while reflecting  on  the  complex  relationship we have towards nature, each other, and objects at the "micro", "macro" and "cosmic' scales.  I hope that my attempts will make you   aspire  to contemplate the lifeforce in all things great and small with  balance serenity and equanimity. 


Signed and numbered limited edition of 10 prints of each 3 sizes. Printed on Somerset Velvet 100% rag museum quality paper, with archival pigment inks rated to last over 100 years. Each of the prints is signed and numbered 1 to 10 and comes with a certificate of authenticity.


The digital media allows  limitless possibilities of color relationship and color subtleties which do not exist in traditional methods, as this painting shows, that is why I often compose combine and bring forward my traditional work to be enhanced by the digital media.
