Life.Still - 100 Days Project
the Daily Grind
This project is a visual idiom, a metaphor utilising the still life genre. It is less an instruction manual and more of a meditation, a contemplation upon daily existence.
Each day my task was to paint a small object and then to upload an image of the painting here. All the daily paintings are intended as a device for clarity and continuity within my daily life. Each month the painting's object will alter, expanding upon the focus of that contemplation. I ran out of steam around Day 88.
It began on the 1st of August 2015
