"Bottles & Jars XXII" (2011), is a museum-level oil painting by New York trained artist Peri Schwartz. From her iconic “Reflections” series, is one of largest and most visually dynamic works by the artist. This is an important example of the artist's internationally celebrated painting style, where she interprets formal relationships between color, space, and light, both of objects and interior spaces, ultimately abstracting the traditional still-life in a fresh and unique manner.

Schwartz literally breaks down glass and metal bottles, vases and jars, by painting them in single brushstrokes and flat planes, transforming them into patterns based on color, natural light and shadow. This flattening and blurring of edges and ground lines, is in dynamic visual contrast to the depth of the reflected light off the highly polished table's surface. The colors in the paintings are also in necessary contrast, as soft blues, greys and whites, are incorporated with strokes of black, reds and oranges. This is one of the finest oil paintings from the artist's iconic "Reflections" series with similar examples is some of the world's top Museum collections.
