Annotations and Sales
The annotations provide an insight into the composition, reasoning and influences of the still lifes together with background information of the ‘actors’.
My inspiration for a still life creation is often sparked by some innocuous item found in ‘junk shop’, a charity shop, a car boot sale, eBay the local tip or just found . It may be years before an item is used but at the time of obtaining the item, it seemed to spark an interest for some unknown reason. I am often asked by the proprietors of shops, “Looking for anything in particular?” and my answer is often, “No not really but I’ll know it when I see it”. Occasionally though I may be hunting for that final piece of a compositional jigsaw and if no suitable item is found then it is a time to be creative.
