Historical Context:
"For me, still life is a marriage of metaphor, arrangement and observation. Factors of choice, such as placement, point of view and lighting seem to plasticize this particular genre allowing the painter an enormous amount of freedom for abstract manipulation. In my paintings I strive for serene and lucid solutions to arrangement and color. I look for, and attempt to establish, relationships between very ordinary, often utilitarian objects, objects that have beautiful and functional shape, old objects, which seem to have a past." - Sharon Sandberg
