Beauty in the everyday stationary
"Learning to 'see' is the first and most important skill an artist must learn to develop. No where else are color, value relationships based on light more consistent and straightforward than a still life." Sharon Tarr
"Still life is best school,best exercise for artists" Russian born artist Sergei Bongart
I love still life because I like catching an image out the corner of my eye and expecting it will still be there when I turn around and set my lens. Its predictable, its safe and nothing puts you more in the moment, and feels more tangible than a still life.
No matter where you hang a still life, or position it on a table it will always look as if it belonged there.
