Historical Context:
"Traditionally, artists would paint still lives to display the high status of the patron by including a selection of lavish and expensive objects. This painting is a student project and reflects the traditional idea of a still life, but in a modern setting. The randomness of things and lack of logicality express the financial struggle that is so commonly experienced as a student, but counteracted with the spontaneity of being young, able, and free." -Nicole Shipman
