Still life

Gowen Still life,12″18″
acrylic on paper

I construct and paint still lives as a form of a narrative. Some are created as a reflection of what others or I collect. Objects sometime have weighted meaning or representation as character in a storyline.

The series of small paintings inspired by the still life of Juan Sánchez Cotán,’s Quince, Cabbage, Melon and Cucumber(1602) is a reflection of my early interest in still life and dream like imagery.
