Both the color scheme in differentiated red tones and the zoomed-in flower motif are reminiscent of baroque still lifes. The blossoms are rendered hyper-realistically, one almost seems to feel the scent of the blossoms.

Casagrande & Recalcati

The artist duo CASAGRANDE & RECALCATI, who live and work in Milan, feel a connection to the tradition of still life. The flower paintings, titled Hypervanitas, take up the idea of baroque vanitas images, and their close connection with the ephemeral. The flower paintings, titled Hypervanitas, refer to the idea of baroque vanitas paintings, and their close connection with the ephemeral. The paintings are reflections of the inevitable passing of time and illustrate various stages of beauty in continuous metamorphosis. The artist duo, who has already worked for Dolce & Gabbana, skillfully celebrates beauty, materiality, and transience in their paintings. Their latest oil paintings on canvas depict lush, floral compositions that, on closer inspection, already seem to be slowly wilting. The paintings by the artist duo transport us to an imaginary Garden of Eden, which is subject to slow degradation. Here nature portrays itself as a morbid beauty. Everything is fleeting but preserved thanks to the meticulous art of painting.
