My art around 2000 such as these apple works, was very much in the tradition of Cubism, Bomberg and Frank Auerbach. These apple paintings were about creating a tangible sense of mass in space, and making space / air a palpable felt presence, as it is in reality. The apple is literally carved FROM space -with incised lines IN the paint - corresponding with how in reality the apple is IN space not on it, space wraps AROUND the apple.
