Still Life with Studio by Simon Sieradzki, Perth
Oil on Board / 21.2 x 37.6 x 1.2 cm
The idea for Still life with Studio came to me when I was working on a series of still life paintings in my studio. I saw in the distance, just across the studio space opposite mine, was a collection of objects that looked like a traditional still life made up of artist’s things. I decided to paint the objects as they were with the surrounding space of the studio. I painted the composition in a small ‘sight size’ scale. I found it interesting that the painting is as much a still life as it is an interior landscape, with the small clutter of objects balanced by the blank space of the studio interior.
