I have always admired the still lifes of the old Dutch masters.
I would like to see this genre not lose its relevance in the 21st century, but perhaps acquire a new sound. I was inspired by a modern floral composition and embodied it with the most tactile materials-pastels on velvet. These mediums allowed me to make the fruits and flowers even more material and realistic. The velvet repeats the velvety surface of peaches and makes the drawing almost tangible, creating an effect of hyperreality. And the rich pigments of dry pastels combined with the depth of black velvet allow the colors to glow from within.
The work is based on the composition Frances Palmer Pottery.
Artwork is decorated in a wooden baguette and carefully packed for transportation. After receiving the picture, it is necessary to protect it with glass. To preserve the perception, we recommend using museum anti-reflective glass. When making a design, we recommend creating an air layer between the surface of the drawing and the glass. To do this, you can use the products of FrameTek (econospace) or similar.
Proper design will keep the colors clean and bright for hundreds of years.
