Proposal (Still Life)
I am juggling two ideas around at the moment. With one of my ideas is to base my still life on the theme of magnetism. I would utilize the properties of a magnet to create gravity defying elements within the images. I believe this would create a different twist in the still life world. My second idea is more of a traditional approach to still lifes, draping of cloths, window lighting, similar to Adriaen van Utrecht's paintings but based on outlandish consumer products that you see in stores today. My main focus would be energy supplements such as Monster, Jolt, Red Bull, Fat Burners, Power Bars. I feel that it would be an interesting context to see these products placed in. The color should also be interesting, seeing how the designs are made to catch your attention. Techniques that I will likely utilize are back standard movements, to adjust perspective of the bottles to give a more "upright" look.
