THE END OF THE WORLD
A still life of everyday objects to which the artist is attached- books, music cds, flowers from the garden, a cup of coffee – slowly disappears under a blanket of white powder that falls like snow.
Like in the old Dutch still life painting genre Memento Mori – reminding us of the transience of our life and attachments in the face of inevitable death – here too that awareness of ephemerality exists. But here it is compounded by the suggestions of destruction and of ecological disaster caused by human intervention. (This piece is also included as one of the shorts in Housekeeping).
