Vanitas Winter 2013

These drawings were executed in the Vanitas style.  Each student collected objects, which were to be used in a preliminary photograph.  The resulting composition was meant to remind us of the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death.   However, students could diverge from common Vanitas symbols of decay and ephemeral nature of life and allude to something personal, that this sensuous atmosphere would inspire.
