Sam Taylor Wood

Sam Taylor Wood is a contempary artist who often deicts social situations and human emotions, entwining psychology theories into her work. She has worked with many celebrities, for example Elton JOhn, the Pet shop boys, and was commissioned by David Beckham to video him sleeping. Sam Wood creation 'Still life' is one of her most classical peices, and reminds us of the style painting that arose during the 16th to 17th century. The decaying fruit bowl is interesting because by the end, there is nothing left but a grey pile of dust and a plastic pen, this suggests that after life we will only leave worthless objects to which are not important.
