Sofas, door handles, soap, pickle pots and other everyday consumer items lie at the centre of this publication. Its gaze brings details into focus. Unusual focusing and angles reveal the artistic quality of ordinary objects, and open new ways of seeing which do not necessarily fit within the traditional motifs that are used in landscapes, still-lives and portraits. However, the artworks that have been assembled in this publication show how the apparently casual objects around us are well worth a second glance. Their significance as the integral components of our daily lives is revealed.
