Still Life is my favorite genre style of art. It is an arrangement of inanimate objects portrayed as the subject matter. I enjoy picking my objects as it helps me build a story behind the still life.
In this specific piece, I went hunting around my apartment for all the trinkets I could find, objects that I could bring alive. Each element is so important, from the fabric to each shell piece laid out. Some of the objects in the composition bare a symbolic meaning, for example; the flowers for passion, the shells and coins for good fortune, the pearl necklace for loyalty and the owl statue for wisdom.
