Framework #6: Still Life

In this still-life practice, I attempt to create a perspectival distortion that is seldomly revealed in traditional painting but can be manipulated with the camera. The glass is straightly sitting on the cork mat, whereas the whisky bottle is very tilted. The cut pattern on the glass and bottle reflects and refracts light and image of the object at the back. The cactus in the background, the glass and the bottle form a V shape that attracts the viewer to look at the whisky and ice in the glass. However, the flame of the scented candle is too obvious to ignore. Together with the flower and whisky, the lively photo tries to arouse viewers to imagine the smell.
