About the Artwork:
“Being in isolation I wanted to paint my immediate environment. My garden backs onto a beautiful bush reserve. This still life was inspired by the flowers I gathered in my garden and placed in a vase next to some quinces on my kitchen table. The light was just right so I stared the painting there and finished it in my studio”. Goldin
It is interesting to note, the earliest known still life paintings were created by the Egyptians in the 15th Century. The term, “still life” is derived from the Dutch word stilleven, which gained prominence during the 16th century. A still life (also known by its French title, nature morte) painting is a piece that features an arrangement of inanimate objects as its subject. Usually, these items are set on a table and often include organic objects like fruit and flowers and household items like glassw’are and textiles.
