An early work from a time before he established his reputation as a landscape painter, Paramjit Singh’s still-life seems to be assembled on a windowsill that glows in the moonlight. Consisting of tubular vases, only one of which has flowers, the dark shape outside seems to suggest a hill or canopy of trees over which an inky sky is still bright enough to show the shadows cast by each vase. A faintly mysterious quality is a precursor of the same quality in Singh’s later landscape paintings.
