Modern Vanitas

‘Still Life Infinite Vanitas’ Kevin Best

As evidenced by the gallery page of Vanitas paintings, I’m rather a fan of the macabre and beautiful still lifes. I find the warmth and depth of the paintings appealing.

Whilst building my gallery page, I came across some modern Vanitas art.  For example, the person who did the piece above,  Kevin Best , does amazing work .

Likewise lovely:
