Still Life 1985
18” x 24” x 1.5"
“Still Life 1985” is a contemporary ‘take’ on a Renaissance-like work that reflects the year 1985. Classic subject matter in art like this might have included a dead goose or a sliced up apple. Instead the highlight of this piece is a pair of Air Jordan 1s. Released in 1985, the sneakers are now coveted by many and are crazy expensive. Classic. The onion on the right is a nod to the city where Michael Jordan played most of his career. Chicago was named after a stinky onion or something similar.
