Oranges & Pomegranates

Oil on canvas - 122x83cm (48x33in) - 2012

Every aspect of Oranges and Pomegranates is illustrated with patient attention to detail. The reflections of orange slices on the knife blade, the bright golden contours of pulp, the red glow of each delicate pomegranate seed and their shadows strewn across the wooden table – all rendered with particular care. This delicious ensemble is supported by a cast of finely composed porcelain that leaves the viewer with an impression of spatial depth and weight. Treated to a metaphor for both the bitter and sweet parts of life, the viewer’s mouth waters at the stark depictions of these traditional and exotic fruits.
