Stills (aka Off the Shelf) is a return to the still life, something I have explored on and off for the last many decades. I love still lifes, they mark the quiet overlooked moments and "sensations too subtle for words", to quote Cezanne.

Each time you look at a tangerine you can see deeply into it. You can see everything in the universe in one tangerine. When you peel it and smell it, it's wonderful. You can take your time eating a tangerine and be very happy.
