Pronk Still Lifes are ornate 17th Century oil masters usually interpreted as a form of vanitas painting that conveys a moral lesson.
Works of Jeroen Luijt are frequently mistaken for oil paintings. Luijt draws heavily from painterly traditions – laden with symbols that have historically represented the emotions, wealth and life—it is the challenges of the photographic process that really fascinate him. “When taking a photo, what you see is what you get. If there’s a reflection of light on a glass, you will see that reflection. When an object is shown balanced on the edge of the table you actually have to balance it there. Painting is hard, of course, but sometimes it’s easier to paint reality than to photograph it.
