from 2004



study for a vanitas still life, oil on canvas mounted on board, 7.25 x 9.25 inches

This is another piece from four years ago that's been calling to me lately. I find myself drawn to the shape of the coins as they rotate in space along with the depth perspective created by size, contrast and edges.

I'd thought about using this idea in a painting as a computer's screen saver. Vanitas often use money as a symbol of greed and this seemed like a contemporary way to work that in.
