Still Life

I’ve noticed that making films and videos has started to influence the way I approach making paintings.

Whilst reading about Russian Psychic, Nelya Mikhailova, I thought that the groups of objects that she attempted to move with the power of her mind looked like little Still Lifes. I thought of making this painting called “Still Life with Psychic” as a one panel image, but then added another panel with the Still Life in an altered arrangement, as if it had been moved by Psychic powers.

The objects in the Still Life are things I had to hand in the studio. The portrait of  Nelya Mikhailova is adapted from a photograph in Sheila Ostrander & Lynn Schroeder’s book Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain.
