DescriptionWhether you collect musical instruments or recipes, this faux CD cover will add some life to your decor. Traditional still life art often features fruit and musical instruments, but this piece adds a bit of humor to some popular hobbies. If you love strawberries, you may see a heart-shaped strawberry there, but if you love music, that strawberry may remind you more of a guitar pick! There's no question that this fruit is ambiguous . . . so celebrate the ambiguity of fruit and make some jam while listening to guitar rock . . .
Marion Muirhead, Waterloo, ON Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement An impossible decision between art, literature, and music has led me to find the universal patterns that apply in nature, language, and paralanguage. I wrote my dissertation on complex systems dynamics, otherwise known as Chaos Theory. In this way, I've found that these interests are complementary and rather than detracting from each other, they lend a wholeness to my understanding of each area of interest.
I hope you enjoy these images and find them both simple and complex: there is always something new to be found even in the most familiar, every-day sights . . .
