Jean-Christophe Robert's still lifes are three-dimensional and depict ordinary objects on a scale of one, they are placed at eye level and are hung from walls just like paintings.

These works represent mundane, everyday objects which are neither rare nor unique nor original. They are not made of precious or valuable material; on the contrary, they are very banal, serialized objects of very common quality. They are utilitarian or ornamental, socially neutral and simple items of use to any social class. Meant for mass-consumption, they can be found anywhere filling in the shelves of food and furniture stores. Among them some big brand names, but all of them are distributed everywhere. The artist's still lifes can be classified along various categories: foodstuffs, cleaners, toiletries, toys, printed materials, decorative or furniture wares.

The structure and form of the three-dimensional still lifes gives the impression they have exploded into space. The artist does not attempt to impose any kind of hierarchy and gives equal primacy to the three main components of paintings, that is the stretcher, the canvas swathing the whole composition and the paint which, more or less conspicuously, covers the edge of the object facing the visitor and standing parallel to the wall.
