Memento Mori 2021
The ancient practice of reflecting on mortality snuck into many of our lives during the Covid period. My still life, “Memento Mori”, arose from an impromptu placement of a mask I wanted to save for another wearing... I popped it on a plaster cast I have for studying facial anatomy and was instantly reminded of the old Dutch masterworks. A candle stub and faded flower and some dramatic lighting completed the somewhat macabre arrangement and voila... a reminder of our pandemic experience. As we happily approach the end of it, at least here in Canada, I wonder how quickly we will shake it off and return to “normal”?
