Studio Still Lifes: progression of the project

May 2021, working in the studio throughout the pandemic, my Studio Still Life series began with photographs of objects that I had collected in the studio. The images reflect my fascination with objects: their textures and shapes, their sameness and their differences. And my desire to collect them and incorporate them in my work. The series grew to include the juxtaposition of my studio materials with the human body, and the project became an Object/Body series. We live in a material universe. We are a material universe: “We do not 'come into' this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean "waves," the universe "peoples." Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.” (Alan Watts)
