Kurtis Ceppetelli and Matt Malone’s most recent series re-imagines the idea of traditional still life painting.  Unlike their earlier figurative work, the painters focus this time on what is left behind when the figure is gone.  What remains is a still life that hints at human presence.  The title of each painting at first glance seems contradictory, but it cues the viewer in to this presence.  The technique of the two artists remains the same as in the past: painting on the same canvas at the same time, adding and subtracting elements until a final agreement concludes each piece.
