Delicious ..Lemon Curd and Blueberry Tart by 



“*Lemon Curd and Blueberry Tart” is part of the “Delicious” collection*..Watercolour on Arches Not Paper…

Featured in Light in the Darkness….

This new series is definitely a reflection of my particular experience… it is at once a commentary on the richness of our culture and at the same time a reflection of my daily life…food is essential to life…suffice it to say we can’t exist with out it

Painting food has a long history and according to Kenneth Bendiner in the comprehensive “Food in Painting”, is a separate classification of Art…He "underlines the central importance of 16th century innovations in food subjects and the great influence of 17th century Dutch art in the development of food imagery".
He explains, with examples of paintings by the likes of Rembrandt, Chardin, Manet, Warhol and many others, how "food images can be purely symbolic, surrealist, and an element in allegories…he also shows the optimistic, human centered Renaissance spirit of food painting, and the way abundance, success and fulfillment pervade this art".

But the illusion fails, and time returns us
to noisy cities where the blue
is seen in patches, up between the roofs.
The rain exhausts the earth then;
winter’s tedium weighs the houses down,
the light turns miserly — the soul bitter.
Till one day through a half-shut gate
in a courtyard, there among the trees,
we can see the yellow of the lemons;
and the chill in the heart
melts, and deep in us
the golden horns of sunlight
pelt their songs
”. excerpt…Eugenio Montale

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

  • Thank you so much Solomon …in the tradition of food painting, realism is the norm, but I like to keep it fairly painterly….

    Peaches, pears, oranges,
    strawberries, cherries, figs,
    apples, melon, honey dew,
    oh, music of my senses,
    pure pleasure of the tongue;
    let me speak now
    of fruit that fascinate,
    with the flavor, with the hues,
    with the fragrance of their syllables:
    oh tangerine, oh tangerine
    . Eugenio de Andrade

    indeed, its art after-all…and if one needs realism beyond these beautiful watercolour works, they should just snap a photo instead!
