INSPIRATION FOR THESE XXL FRUITS ON CANVAS

One day during my art holiday in Catalonia back in the tropical summer of 2019 I found an apricot on the road. And I was like: what is this perfectly fine apricot doing on the ground? There was only one explanation possible: there had to be a tree. And there was. I was in awe! Apricots are one of my very favourite summer fruits but the ones in the supermarkets back home in The Netherlands are often very mushy or grainy. This one was fresh and sweet and smooth. And still it had been laying on the ground!

I have always been fascinated by the bright orange colour and texture of apricots. As a child I remember I found apricots way too colourful to eat them. How could something so vibrant be meant for food? And their soft outside texture made me feel sorry for them when I put my teeth in them…

Fascination makes good inspiration for art though. For me these Fruits are summer art at its best. They are juicy, bright and colourful. I placed some of them on earth and some of them in space to invite you to look up at the stars and wonder at their magnificence. But not to forget about the fruits while looking at the stars. Fruit has its own marvel. With this series I wish to connect the luminaries in space with those on earth. And create awareness of the magnificence so much closer to home.
