How you can use this image

In this bold painting by Michael Craig-Martin, ordinary objects are depicted against a coloured background, neither touching nor overlapping one another. These discrete images appear unrelated to each other conceptually as well as compositionally: what exactly links a bunch of keys with a chair? The disparity of scale adds to our sense that the artist's choice of objects was arbitrary. Craig-Martin typically works with a restricted (but vivid) palette of colours and repertoire of images.
