I really dig this Coffee pot and Pomegranates painting by Liza Merkalova. It reminds me of the still lifes we used to draw/paint in various art classes. I love the combination the objects… Industrial with a little flair of color?
[…and yes, it is “still LIFES.” I embarrassed myself by asking a curator at a museum.]
Liza Merkalova is a pseudonym of an Australian based artist with Russian cultural background. The subject matter of her paintings is constantly changing according to the currency of her interests, varying from portraits and still lifes to perception of places and subject paintings. Taking into account all emotional impacts and influences, the style of the majority of the paintings could be called Subconscious realism.
Lisa is in the Saatchi gallery. She lives and works in South Australia.
