Sunflowers with Skull

Year 9
School: Perth Modern School
Medium: Pastel on paper

Artist statement: This still life was inspired by the Baroque style of using strong tonal contrasts – chiaroscuro, to create a dramatic image and mood. The juxtaposition of the bright lively sunflowers with the rams skull contributes further to this dramatic tension.
