A feature of some contemporary still life is the idea of background becoming of equal importance to the subject. Perhaps this can be read as a reflection of a new way of seeing the Self as a continuum. Bright colours are used for the backgrounds, rather than the traditional shadowy neutrals.

Idea for genre combination:
Portrait of artist painting other genre.
Pattern of clothes. Dark hair.
Colourful palette


Huge canvas: 12 foot by 7 foot

Self's background colours are unusual -
often very bright or dark - a break from the
neutral backgrounds of traditional still life.

Not really 'still life', but small animals are sometimes a part of the genre.
