For over 40 years, Dean Habegger has focused on creating highly individualized, modern versions of still life composition. His contemporary approach to this historical genre typically features the juxtaposition of interior and exterior space set within an intriguing invented world. Dean’s still life works also incorporate a vast and colorful visual inventory of his personal symbolism, such as tables, vessels, pouring liquids, branches, sky elements, windows, fruit, ribbons, and drapery.

Dean creates in various media, including painting, drawing, collage, and assemblage. Along with creating new works on paper, canvas, and wood, he also recycles and reworks unfinished older works. His artwork is created by sanding, scraping, scratching, collaging, drawing, and painting.

Since the late 1980’s Dean has also experimented with and incorporated dried organic materials into his work. Using citrus peelings, sunflower seed shells, leaves, strawberry tops, fruit pits, cantaloupe and avocado skins, branches, and twigs has given Dean’s work a unique multi-media signature style that is distinct and recognizable while directly connecting the visual imagery of his works to the natural world.
