Dutch Inspired Still Life with a twist

This is an album cover I shot for a friend of mine who has an alternative music label.  To be used as the cover art for a compilation of artists.  We really wanted to evoke an emotional response from the viewer.  I love Dutch 17th century still life paintings.  The light was always so stunning in those paintings  I wanted to use those paintings as the foundation from which to build this image.  What we did to add our tweak was to integrate the human form into the image to disrupt the idea of the traditional image & painting.  The idea of an alternate emerging from traditional forms of expression.  This loosely fits with my friends label which is about disrupting the norm.  To come at a subject from an alternative perspective and what that perspective does to change the future expectations and actions of the viewer.
