Still life is a ubiquitous genre in the art world. And while it definitely has its place, to me, the genre tends to feel a little (ironically?) too still. My work has always been focused on exploring the theme of letting go of self-control and discovering the unexpected delight that can show up when you do. So for this series, I was intent on evolving my style by bending, throwing and flipping the contents of ordinary vases to capture the chaotic, eclectic fun that’s to be had from embracing the unexpected.
