About still life.

I don’t get the fact that rarely you find someone who thinks still life is macabre. To me it’s the most macabre form of art. You have something dead thus essentially rotting, arranged in the exact manner you want and often depicted in vibrant colours and high contrast as if to shake any thought of the staged display of death in front of you. I find it pretentious, dishonest and misleading. Even the english term is wrong. I prefer the greek, “νεκρή φύση”, which means “dead nature” and exists as a term in some other languages as well.

I forgot to mention: If there is rotting flesh, fruit, flowers or a skull or bones, it is mighty fine.

Still under the tree. It’s hot and I don’t wanna get inside. #coffee #sketch #sketchbook #drawing
