STILL LIFE                                                                                                          back

'Still-life' remains an important theme in visual art, but what are the characteristics and possible ingredients for a 
contemporary still life? Is it about impermanence, about beauty, about showing what is important to the customer/owner?
Does 'le moment decisif' play a role? In photography, there is room for chance versus the meticulous composing of a
scene, specific to the painted still life
