Still Life

  Scroll down to see individual works 

The same sense of atmosphere is apparent in Roger’s still life works. Cast in a traditional light, recent works involve the use of ginger jars, tea pots and case jars as compositional support for a vast array of fruit and vegetables. The artist often renders of a pair of scissors in his still life pieces. The purpose is to add a touch of mystery and from a composition sense, act a counter balance in form and color. These are delightful pieces, full of color and displaying the artist’s never ending search for light.
