Emilie Maguin - Easy Like Sunday Morning
50 x 50cm. Acrylic and Ink, framed in oak
This piece continues the theme of Art within Art, and references to France and French/ European culture. A Juan Miro exhibition poster hangs on the wall as well as a Matisse postcard. I balanced this out by bringing in the all-important Australian Vegemite jar! The apples and red geranium are nods to classic Still Life painting, as they are elements the masters often use in their studies. The steel jug captures a distorted reflection of the scene. Textures and pattern play feature again in this work, as I find them so joyful. I like the idea of painting these little tablescapes, snapshots of ordinary objects that tell a story about everyday life. Our daily clutter says a lot about us!
