" B.A VIERLING - The Vanitas takes it's thematic inspiration from the traditional still life genre of the same name, prevalent in northern Europe throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. My unique composition groups artifacts and relics that were painstakingly rendered from real life over the course of many months. The display is a deeply personal exploration of these objects. The painting measures 36" x 24" (91 cm x 61 cm). Executed in egg tempera and oil paint on panel."
