"This painting is part of a series of still lifes called "Vanguard." It is my way of bringing the genre on flower still lifes, that hasn't aged too well, into the 21st century by interpreting it in a modern and contemporary way.
The series started in 2018, but this one is from 2019 and one of the most recent. The original painting is on heavy cotton canvas, with oil paints combining various painting techniques using modern tools like paint rollers, squeegees and masking tape.
Painting these still lifes take quite some time since I never know what the end point will be when I start painting. I also work in many layers which means long drying times between painting sessions. For those reasons finishing one of these can sometimes take up to 8 weeks, but if everything goes well I'm able to finish one in 3-4." - Alpay Efe
