Artist's description:

ABOUT THE PAINTING : This new piece was very pleasant to do with the Flemish oil technique. I tried to work the light to give more depth to the human skull and using a book, it was possible to recall the main subject of this painting "Memento mori". Symbolism is always strong in these paintings. The chessboard reminds us that we are simple pieces on the scale of the universe. The steel ball like an ancient rifle bullet sends us by reflection the nothingness in which we will plunge. And because we forget that we are going to die, it can also refer to the nothingness in which we are already. CARPE DIEM ! This painting was done on a MDF panel treated to resist time and humidity. The frame is elegant, heavy and valorizes the depth of the subject.
