The Dutch 17th century Vanitas ‑paintings were primarily still‑lifes, quite often incorporating bones, that is skulls and such, dead insects even. These allegories served to remind the living not to get too comfortable ‑ that is attached to luxuries and wealth, as, just as with a bowl of fruit or vase flowers, temporality, decay, was just around the corner, and so too this mortal flesh.
My intention in this Vanitas show however is to present, through portraiture, a more uplifting view to Vanitas this life in the real world. I havedepicted people in their diverse ages and stages of life. Yes there is an end to life but lets embrace each moment with wonder.
I have used the flower motif as metaphor and individual portraits representational of humanity, that is humanness. Flowers in their beauty, bud, flourish and decline. so too with we humans.
Flowers express joy through beauty, humankind express their experiences, life's challenges and victories in their faces and although the quote 'vanity of vanities, all is vanity' (Ecclesiastes), is intended to remind us that life is but a transient passing show, there is contained within these moments in time, the splendour and privilege of our participation.
