Framed 60x60 cm
Orange and blue glass
Contemporary still life.
An orange and its peel sit on a blue glass. The light shines through the subject, as if coming from inside. The chiaroscuro technique enhances the strong contrast between the subject and the very dark background and gives an illusion of three-dimensional quality and a sense of mystery.
The painting is framed. The frame is a handcrafted Florentine product.
