Still Life with Modern Icons

David Ligare - Still Life with Burgers, Fries and Apple

I have always admired the still life genre. The form has changed little over the centuries and continues to be a staple in art and remains extraordinarily difficult to construct a really good and memorable image. This is one of those.

It certainly has changed over the years, Indigo. I'm no art critic, but that truly does look real. Where's the soft drink?

Indigo Red said...

It was a hot day. The artist drank it.

There are still lifes from three, four hundred years ago the look absolutey real, too.

A: There's an apple in it.

How many kids have you seen stopping off at the fruit stand after going through the McDonalds Drive Thru?

Good observation, Mike.
