Still Life
Vilhelm Lundstrøm

Still Life

An arrangement of objects on a table is also known as a nature morte or a still life. It is a classical motif in art history. Vilhelm Lundstrøm worked with the motif throughout his life, and there are both cubist, “curly” and classic still lifes by him. In his late arrangements he allows the pure, pastose painted surfaces to determine the shape. He also makes use of space-creating elements such as perspective lines and bright light and shade. But his space remains ambiguous because the elements are treated more as abstract forms with a value in themselves than as illusionist subterfuge.
