Still Life (under water)

 

(2014)
Acrylic, Mineral Oil, Laptop, Desk Lamp
80cm x 125cm x 45cm

 

A laptop and a lamp sit on a desk, completely submerged in liquid while continuing to work. Still Life takes a familiar scenario of contemporary everyday life and by altering the physical environment in which it exists, changes it into something surreal, like in a dream, floating, frozen in time but functioning in place.
