Soft Bowls by Kristine Five Melvær


The Soft Bowls series is part of the Still Life project, where I reinterpret traditional still life motives.

The series consists of two bowls. One bowl looks like an inverted version of the other. Together they tell the story of a changing shape. This and the organic shapes make the static birch tree appear plastic. The bowls make two different landscapes that present the fruit in different ways. In one landscape the fruit can hide and peek over the edge, and in the second landscape, it can climb up the mountain.
