Still Life and Vanitas

Tribute to Bill Traylor, 24" x 36", 2000 Dr. Kim Collection

In his momento mori (meaning, “remember you will die”) paintings, Marion groups objects such as knives, necklaces, dead birds and skulls in arrangements that suggest Renaissance “vanitas” paintings, using allegory to point to the futility of earthly ambitions and accomplishments. Kryczka observes that, “Objects, once arranged, are no longer that same. They take on a new significance.”
