Still Life Paintings

These rich and complex works bring together influences from East and West, ancient and modern traditions. The eye vibrates between flat shape and rendered 3-dimensional form. Bold brushwork and passages of saturated Fauvist color are juxtaposed with the subtler harmonies and decorative patterning of Persian miniature painting. In this mature work Furchgott explores the multiple planes of existence, both inner and outer, on which we live our lives.
