Vanitas exhibit at ART.FAIR 21 Cologne

Announcing the world premier exhibition of my painting titled, Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas, at the ART.FAIR 21 in Cologne, Germany. The Strychnin Gallery will be presenting my work in their booth at the fair, from Friday the 29th of October, to Sunday the 1st of November.

The Vanitas takes it's thematic inspiration from the traditional still life genre of the same name, prevalent in northern Europe throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. My unique composition groups artifacts and relics that were painstakingly rendered from real life over the course of many months. The display is a deeply personal exploration of these objects. The painting measures 36" x 24" (91 cm x 61 cm). Executed in egg tempera and oil paint on panel.

A small work titled, Pomegranates, is also being exhibited at the Fair. The painting measures 12" x 9" (30.5 cm x 23 cm). Egg tempera and oil paint on panel.

Both paintings will be in the illustrious company of works by Madeline von Foerster, David Hochbaum, Saturno Butto, Margart Bowland, Marina Bychkova, and other internationally acclaimed artists.
