A Fragile Life

This is a still life painting created with acrylic on mount board that was inspired by life during lockdown and the effects it has on people’s mental health. I chose to do a still life inspired by a Vanitas style to portray transience of life using objects like a skull to symbolise death and syringes and bottles to show alcohol and drug misuse.This is to emphasise the strain on mental wellbeing during lockdown and the absence of loved ones and loss that many have experienced during this time, which is accentuated by the choice of a still life rather than a piece such as a portrait painting.
