I haven’t posted a still life painter in ages for the simple reason that there are so many painters who seem to do identical, technically excellent, but unimaginative still lifes.  Sadie J. Valerie’s experimentation with creating dynamic shapes (i use that word ‘dynamic’ begrudgingly as i hate it and read it far too often, though here it does seem applicable) and lyrical compositions are far more engaging.  Certainly one to watch.

  2. It might be worth looking at some early Still life paintings by Harry Holland. These have a similar quality of objects becoming metaphorical stage sets. He stated that he wasn’t very imaginative at art school and was only good at copying. However he built some really interesting still lives to paint out of cardboard and fabric (a bit like Jessica Stockholder)
