Kaleidoscopic Still Life is a reinterpretation of the baroque still life painting as well as an experiment of how to use the photographic medium as a painting tool. Aesthetically the series draw inspiration from the Baroque still life painting’s use of dramatic light and saturated colors where value contrast is used as a tool to appeal to the senses in a dramatic way. The strong light and bright colors are as well in "Kaleidoscopic Still Life" used conceptually as a symbol for life, hope, and happiness. The vanity and fragility of life are depicted in my use of common vanitas symbols as well as in the surreal effects that serve as a constant reminder of an underlying fear and anxiety.
