THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Still Life on Chinese Silk Fruits and Vegetables painting embodies a number of different aspects of human nature, and perhaps they are all of the darker ones, yes, but they are human nonetheless. This painting features a prominent apple in its center, one that stands for temptation and sin originating from the Adam and Eve lore. Combining with this is the radish which symbolizes lust one feels for another, while the lemon works to convey the disappointment and bitterness that comes with these desires being unfulfilled. The garlic is the symbol of bravery and the sunny orange background inspires hope to overcome these dark aspects of ourselves to find happiness.
