Description

PAINTING DETAILS:

This is an original, one-of-a-kind painting of the inside of an orange. This is an original oil painting on canvas and measures 12″ wide by 12″ long and 0.5″ deep. I signed it on the back of the canvas and painted the sides of the painting black. The piece is ready to hang but not framed. Depending on your computer, colors may vary slightly from photographs. Shipping is free to the United States.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK:

My oil paintings turn familiar kitchen scenes into in an arbitrary space where glistening, close-cropped fruit pulp becomes its own vibrant world. Hyper-magnifying the inside of ripe fruit in oil paint pays homage to traditional still life painting while distorting the genre. Varying the scale of my paintings and the species of fruit further heightens the enigma, blurring the boundaries between abstraction and representation, the microcosmic and macrocosmic, attraction and repulsion, and whimsy and the scientific. The imagery is readily identified as organic but from there it can take over the imagination.

Oranges symbolize good fortune, new beginnings, wealth, and happiness in Chinese and Japanese culture. In European culture and art, an orange represents the hope of resurrection and eternal life. Citrus fruit is associated with opulence, mortality, free will, wedding, marriage and love throughout art history.

As you can see in the last photos, my oil paintings look beautiful displayed together!

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
