Still Life Jug

Plinth, London, 2015

A still life is a work of art that predominantly depicts inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural or man-made, and in my case, a household jug. However, this jug sculpture contains a narrative, which involves an unknown time duration, through a shift in its position.This inadvertently turns the sculpture into a double paradox in that
a) It is a still life subject yet describes a moment of time through motion…
b) The work is forever trapped in the act of moving.
