Avocado. Still life oil painting with fruit and avocado pot pland

Avocado is an oil painting that was hung in one of the the L’otel exhibitions. It sold to someone who said it was a gift for a friend or associate.

This was one of my favourites, an exercise in complementary colours with the yellow and blue but it also ended up with a feeling of a-moment-in-time where the people are out of frame and these objects sit, waiting. It was painted in Balmain in 1991 over several sessions. As well as an exercise in colour, I was using some fragmentation in the lines that came from studying the cubist painters. It’s not a cubist painting but I liked the way the chair cutting into the table pulled the image back to being a flat surface.
