Objects

These portraits of objects are encountered as symbolized vehicles, plainly art objects rather than paintings.
The foundation use of oil on canvas is a fast track to a navigation of the object's transparency.
The paintings of decoys behave as canards, with both attraction and subterfuge —while the lures bait and hook.
Truffles are a rare find, sniffed out and coveted by connoisseurs.
The glass shard irritant, similar to a grain of sand, embedded in the fleshly tongue of the oyster when nurtured and embraced evolves into a cultured worldly valuable.
The obsessive and possessive nature of a chew toy also speaks of a certain amount of substance to wrangle with.
These are behavioral objects.

And the Garnish.
