Deep Fascination with Everyday Objects

These Paintings (yes, PAINTINGS, not photographs) by Roland Hicks made me gasp.
But it isn't just their highly realistic appearance that made me appreciate them so much - it is the choice of subjects.
Who would think that a hair ball that collects dust on filthy floors can be captured so mesmerizingly? Or thought a sticky grimy gum or little bubbles on a washing soap bottle can illustrate a magnificent image?

I'll leave you with some of his work, but do check his portfolio here
