Still Life with Pomegranates and a Bag at Night (Night Still Life)

Description

‘Still Life with Pomegranates and a Bag at Night’ is the artist's reflection on what is more important for a person. It is a metaphor for the opposition of the material and spiritual worlds. The pomegranate, a symbol of wealth and power, is divided. Its scattered berries will rot tomorrow, so it is a metaphor for temporary material opportunities. The bag also tells us about money, which in the old classical tradition of Dutch art is a symbol of wealth. We see space behind the objects - the infinite dimension of the spiritual. The artist reflects on everyday life and what is beyond it. He does not give us direct questions or answers. The work is an attempt to ‘look beyond the frame of the picture’.
