Still-Life with Fruit

frame, 18 x 24", 2015. 

Acrylic gouache on canvas-mounted paper, 12 x 12", 2015. 

A resplendent fruit bowl, subject of many a classical still-life, overflows with a rainbow abundance of produce. Nestled carefully in a light grey bowl adorned with a gold stripe, each individual piece of foodstuff possess an oddly familiar quality. Upon closer inspection or further reflection, the viewer may come to realize that each precisely rendered form perfectly mirrors an emoji counterpart. 

The image projects a quality of roundness in its circular composition, spherical bowl and plump bountiful fruit. Conversely, it also displays a bewildering flatness in the graphic, hard-edge, almost digital quality of the rendering built up in matte opaque layers of acrylic gouache.
