Gold Embellished Still Life Sculpture

Gold is a symbol of wealth, fortune and success. Artists have used gold leaf to enhance their paintings for centuries. A special process known as water-gilding was used to apply thin gold leaf to the surface of wooden panel paintings before it was burnished. This heightened the brilliance of the paint and created an elaborate and luxurious aesthetic.

Still-life art depicts manmade or natural objects that convey a specific narrative, as in the case of golden sculptures by artists like Sadie Barnette and Azikwe Mohammed. During the 1600s, still life painting reached its apex of materialism and cultural insensitivity with paintings like Juriaen van Streeck’s Still Life with Moor and Porcelain Vessels (1670). In this work, an exotic African slave dressed in striped silk and crimson headgear stands behind a Chinese bowl, a Nautilus cup, and a table laid out with oyster banquet.

The glistening effect of gold instills these works with the status of objet d’art, as demonstrated by Antonio de Pereda’s Still Life with Ebony Chest (1705). Similarly, Gustav Klimt’s golden masterpieces from his “Golden Cycle” at the turn of the century showcase how gold leaf and gilded ornaments can elevate an image into a treasured object. These works also demonstrate how objects transcend time and space to become globalized commodities that circulate across geographical and cultural boundaries.
