Framed 54x69 cm
Tomato and foil cup
Oil painting, on canvas applied on wooden panel, depicting a contemporary still life.
Slices of a tomato sit on and around a crushed foil cup. 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.
