This biomorphic artwork by Nicole Duennebier mix paintings from nature with a classical style.

The still life pieces are inspired by the artist's interest in natural phenomenon like fauna and fungi. She also has a very detailed and opulent style, which comes across in this work. What at first appears classical, upon deeper inspection, is really undersea images and other scientific interpretations. Her website describes this combination as, "an incredible connection between the darkness and intricacy of undersea regions and the aesthetic of 16th century Dutch still-life painting."

Her intricate paintings from nature have a dark vibe to them, especially as much of her subject matter focuses on decomposing aquatic elements. Classical paintings often featured disintegrating fruit, drawing parallels to her work.
