Still Lifes Under Glass | Melanie Lacki Watercolor Gallery

Melanie Lacki‘s expressive still life watercolor paintings explore the reflective surfaces of glass and pay homage to family, friends and favorite artists. “My subject matter is chosen based on a special emotional reaction I get when observing things around me,” says Lacki, referring to the mementos, books, fruit, fabric, shells and more that take center stage in her successful vignettes featuring bell jars.

Over time, her body of work featuring bell jars blossomed into a novel way for her to recognize well-known artists she admired, including Gustav Klimt, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida, Thomas Gainsborough and Vincent van Gogh, by incorporating references to their work within her compositions.

See a few of Lacki’s still lifes under glass below, and look for more in the December 2014 issue of Watercolor Artist, available at www.northlightshop.com and on newsstands October 21.
