Artist Christopher Garvey presents a realistic still-life of radicchio surrounded by radishes and two billiard balls. The objects are placed together on top of a wooden desk with a spotlight illuminating the setting. Droplets of water shine under the light reflected on the subject as well as the table. A mirror image of the objects shows above the wooden table while the play of light and prominent shadows create a solid depth of perception. By taking a traditional approach, Christopher starts his process by building layers of oil paint above an underdrawing. He then works with grisaille, and when once dried, he proceeds with layers of color on top. He paints the subject against a muted backdrop which heightens its vibrance. It results in a captivating realistic still life.

Christopher Garvey

Columbia, South Carolina

Christopher Garvey focuses on the still life in his work, capturing objects like dishes and fruit with impressive clarity. He currently lives in South Carolina and finds inspiration in Renaissance and Baroque art. When it comes to technique, he enjoys the challenge of accurate drawing and the transparent qualities of oil paint. He has collected many books over the years, which he uses to improve his practice.
