Richard Diebenkorn

Scissors, 1959
Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) is an artist who has featured scissors frequently in his still life paintings.  The subject lends itself well to his expressionist style. His works include scissors alone or juxtaposed with other items like Scissors and Lemon and Untitled. Scissors also appear in his other work including etchings.

Perhaps better known for city- and landscapes or abstracts, Diebenkorn's still life work featuring everyday objects from his home serve as an undeniable example of how exquisite beauty and expressiveness lives in the most mundane of objects.
