“To represent terrible and questionable things is, in itself, the sign of an instinct of power and magnificence in the artist; he doesn’t fear them. There is no such thing as pessimistic art. Art affirms”.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Are still-life paintings really still? Imbued by the artist’s intent and purpose, they are far from static representations of inanimate objects. They hold the power to transcend the ordinary and offer viewers insights beyond the surface. Life is never still when we perceive beyond the objects a world of symbols, metaphors, and narratives echoing Life’s mysteries, enigmas, and paradoxes. Beyond their visual aesthetics, still life paintings can convey a sense of morality, the fleeting nature of life, and the passage of time.
