Form V, Still life compositions

Imogen Wardell                              Form V 

These two very strong, yet uniquely styled still life compositions were painted by Form V Pupils Imogen Wardell and Toni Hoffmann. The dark backgrounds and the highlighted subject matter in the foregrounds are somewhat reminisent of the style of Caravaggio who employed the technique of creating dramatic effects with light and dark known as Chiaroscuro.
