OPEN STUDIOS, CAVERSHAM. 2010


Michael Norcross.
From the summer of 2007 my paintings were essentially about representation. I found irony and interest in consumer objects, the fetishism of food in the media, and the discarded. These combine with an interest in colour, and creating mood and atmosphere. I deliberately chose the still life form which has to a large extent been abandoned by contemporary artists and so has ‘low status’. It seems to be appropriate form to use for the consumed and abandoned subject matter and an interesting challenge to recycle it as something worth more than just a second glance.
