My reunion with my primary subject matter of my AS-level photography course (paper), I never explored with colour in those photographs, for instance coloured paper. In a random encounter with pieces of crumbled advertising on paper on my desk, I found the properties of the light and subject matter to be fascinating.
Later today I encountered this piece by Jan van Huysum, Fruit Piece (1972). My reverence for this piece’s harmonic colour palette reserved beauty. This made me realise that I could replicate the tranquil still lifes by my favourite dutch artists on my own desk, but in my own personal and abstract re-imagining.
Regardless that this connection appeared two weeks later than the images that will follow bellow, I will try to pursue this stylefor a few shoots to see if I can achieve a similar motive with abstract forms and different subject matters. I think that in many ways I can transform and preserve, even enhance the tranquil feel of classical still lives.That the abstract properties will add to this
