Vanitas

Vanitas

I have been planning a Vanitas painting for some time. It seems a logical follow-on from the ‘Industrial’ series, dealing as it does with the decay of two centuries of human endeavour  The idea came from a somewhat poignant reminder of the mortality that accompanies material decay – a sunken ship with weapons, shells and a skull. This painting is not a rendition of that image, rather an imagined scene containing those components.
