Still life

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

This time I looked for a book that would fit the previous two just as well as they fitted to each other. In connection to everyday life this book is about texture, colour and feeling of objects and scenes. It’s about the crackly sound of fabric, the smell of things, composition but also about life and death. It’s a book about modern still lives.

The under title is Objects of Desire; and now thinking about it, it is not a bad choice at all. It fits perfectly with the first book because they both represent the normal ordinary things. It suits the second one mainly because it’s as serious as the reality of daily life. It’s definitely a representation of the world in every aspect. Maybe the only tag word that is not so obvious is ‘absurd’, though it’s really there, just on a more underlying surface; subtler I guess.
