I came across some newer works of Holly Farrel's the other day and her paintings of the mundane and ordinary. I'm usually not a fan of still-life's but her subject matter and skill in which she paints them, takes the tired old genre and sets them apart. A self-taught painter, this Canadian born artist paints beautifully intricate replicas of everyday vintage objects and makes them appear timeless. I'm blown away by her textures and shadows and love the idea that at first they seem like photographs. See more of her work below and on her site hollyfarrell.com.
