“At the time I started this new body of work, I was getting into the idea of flowers on graves,” Sage Vaughn told Juxtapoz in his cover story back in February 2015. “This idea of mortality. I’ve been doing a lot of paintings on the subject of vanitas, which is an old still life. The works usually would have a skull or flowers in them, all these Flemish paintings in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries about the fragility of life. I really love it, and in my research, I started to do really expressive skull paintings, almost one a day.”
