"Good drawing not bright colours make figures beautiful" - Tiziano Vecellio (c.1477 – 1576)

Autumn Still-Life with Perrier

As a child Matthew Moss was fascinated by the different forms that colour could assume, shards of glass, from the rich brown of Guinness bottles, the ruby-red glass of night lights, to the exotic dark blues of mysterious medicine bottles. The dark rich green of the Perrier bottle and its contrasting yellow label were an almost obligatory subject to insert into the composition when the artist composed this still life. It seems almost one with the leeks that form the lower right side of the canvas, not to mention the green of the geranium and artichoke leaves. Autumn Still-Life with Perrier is an original and beautiful rendering of a subject universally loved by artists from ancient Egypt and China to modern times.
