Still Life with a Bonsai

This is a very classical still life with a drape, a vase, and a bonsai I executed in oil. The focus is on colour and texture, while the forms describe a firm and classical composition. Original Oil on Canvas is available for sale HERE! or You can Buy Limited Edition Giclee Print on Canvas.

Dutch Tulips

Still life compositions are something I enjoy working on. They are a painterly exercise, a subject that allows me to explore the world of lines, colour and aesthetics. This work is my vision of a geometric still life with tulips. There is a connection with a traditional Dutch art of still life, but I was…

Spring Still Life

Spring Still Life is probably the most abstract of my works on the subject. Everything is reduced to pure form, from the vase and plant to the surrounding space, while the palette follows this minimizing trend. I wanted to portray a still life in a fresh manner and to emphasize the simplicity and the purity…

Still Life with Orchids

There is something visceral and geometric in orchid flowers, a quality I attempted to capture in a still life painting. A balanced, radial composition shows that this is predominantly an exploration of colour, in which I used contrasting pastel pairs of lilac and yellow.

Wonderland

In this work, I used a still life to escape to Wonderland! I explored the contrasts and harmonies of colour, while keeping the geometric unity of the composition. The work is inspired by modernist styles of Cubism and Art Deco. Limited Edition Giclee Print Can be bought HERE!

Still Life in Blue

It was a perfectly natural thing for me to explore the colour blue through still life. I was searching for the expressive power in the lighter nuances of blue, juxtaposed with light contrasts and a lot of leafy green. The composition is again inspired by Neoplastic solutions and it’s more abstract than representational.   Acrylic…

Still Life in Red

Red is a symbol of vitality and I wanted to show its power through this painterly experiment. Even though it is not entirely painted in red, this still life carries the symbolism of the titular colour. The composition is inspired by Neoplasticism to a degree, while my goal was to explore the vivacious harmony of…

Still Life with Lilies

This is a classical representation of still life dressed in a cool, lightly contrasting palette. I played with the theme to show my own vision of lilies in a vase, a demonstration of perspective and form. This piece can be seen as the prefiguration of my latter, entirely geometric works.   Buy a Museum Quality…

Still Life with Orchids and a Teapot

In this classical still life, I explored primary colours, contrasts and texture. I was inspired by Impressionist and Cubist works. The composition is arithmetically correct, as I found geometry fascinating from the start. 80x80cm Oil on Canvas can be purchased HERE!

Ikebana

Japanese art is inherently abstract and I found inspiration in the traditional Japanese flower arrangement. My idea was to show it as a semi-abstract image, reminiscent of an origami flower. Dainty lines describe the orchid and its stems, against a background of contrasting colours. A small homage to the East in the West.   In…
