Painting: Oil on Wood.
This series explores the idea of 'Mono No Aware', a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence, or transience of things.
I am interested in how this idea relates to the tradition of 'Vanitas' still life painting in the Netherlands and Flanders in the 17th Century. 'Vanitas' is a genre of still life painting of symbolic objects that conveys a message about the transience of earthly life.
It is signed and dated on the reverse and comes in a white box frame.
