A Vanitas is a symbolic work of art showing the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death, often contrasting symbols of wealth and symbols of ephemerality and death.

I am currently working on a collection of contemporary Vanitas, where a skull is placed among a series of objects representing our present age.

To create a Vanitas, I usually prepare a set in my studio, then I shoot the subject with a digital camera; the image obtained is processed with AI algorithms, so that it can be comparable to an 17th century painting.

Thanks so much Joshua, much appreciated. I truly love Vanitas classic painting and this is my first, humble attempt to offer a contemporary interpretation. Cheers from Italy!
