Life Still Life

The scenes in the “Life Still Life” series are constructed by choosing readymade products and painting over them to create an uncanny representation of the object, then arranging them on a painted canvas.


To create a sense of tridimensionality, cut black paper is placed under them to give the appearance of shadow. Photographed from above, the still lifes have an off-kilter sense of reality. They appear to be a painting, and it may take a few moments of observation to begin to accurately perceive them as an assemblage.


*Photoshoot produced along with Marco Girado.
