Still Life preceded the painter’s stepping into the surreal, where he eventually found his rather original Art Informel expression by entwining the figurative and the non-figurative, organic substance and matter. However, the colours and morbidity of the composition, coupled with the clear-cut drawing, bring a certain disquietude into this painting as well.
