Still Lifes

It started as a study of a bramble branch for a picture featuring undergrowth, but I then decided to add a few other objects to make a still life. I discovered that still life is a great opportunity to explore the abstract qualities of representational painting; to play with composition, colour, lighting and mark making. I also liked the way strange narratives and possible meanings evolved from these arrangements.
