That is...strangely mesmerizing. The transparency of the fruit flesh is intriguing.

I don't think the fruit paintings are particularly hyperrealistic—the author describes the works as "transcend[ing] a technical mastery to elicit more meaningful associations". They certainly do that, though; they remind me of shady childhood picnics. I can look into this lemon and recall, from 9:20 at night, a hot summer day from long ago.

I agree with Quilford, I wouldn't categorize any of these as hyper realistic but they are very pretty. I'd love to see them in person.

Mostly of fruit? Also dahlias, which are beautiful.

Thanks for posting this.
