Painted from observation, this still life mixes multiple perspectives to create a disoriented yet coherent space. I painted the objects from eye level, while the table's surface is viewed from above. I make the changes based on the needs of the painting's internal composition. As the composition becomes clearer, the painting drifts further and further from any objective truth about the still life I'm observing.
Refers to the excerpt on memory I posted on May 24th from Brain Rules "...present knowledge can bleed into past memories and become intertwined with them as if they were encountered together." And so on and so on.
