Lemons

h: 73 w: 63 d: 6 (cms).

The Lemons in the piece were bought from a local farmshop which always sells fruit right in their prime so the colours are always at their most rich and viabrant. As they were painted in my studio, the tones and colour altered and deepened as they slowly started to decompose. I feel this altering composition makes for an interesting narrative as the layers of paint encompose the different stages of the lemons last stages of life.

Aubergine

h: 25 w: 20 d: 6 (cms).

I saw this little black Aubergine glistening in the corner of my local farmshop and bought it back home to observe its skin in the light of my studio.  Only then did I really take notice of the many layers of warmth hiding under the slightly matte skin. I polished it up and had a great time exploring the  rich deep tones which now danced in the light and hadn't otherwise been obvious to the naked eye. Everytime I came back to the piece, another colour would become clear and I was able to keep layering to achieve something similar to what I now saw.
