“A tribute to the golden age of still life and the original religious allegorical notions of death, greed, vanity and eventual decay. The very fact I can find all of these items made of plastic, including the table cloth shows the message of the original paintings didn’t really get through. I could leave this setup for the rest of my life on a table and aside from getting a bit dusty nothing would change. Welcome to the dream of the digital age.” – Michael Downing
