This work, A Punnet with Blackberries, considers modern visual misrepresentation juxtaposing the delicate light weight aesthetic of a punnet of fresh fruits. The objective, to recreate an identical, naturalistic representation of a quintessentially English summer, but cast in bronze and hand coloured in oils and acrylic paint. The work revealing its secret only when moved.
