About

A small, sensuous jewel of a still life oil painting, depicting a ripe, purple plum. The title of this work is taken from a poem by English Renaissance writer Ben Jonson in which he celebrates unadorned simplicity. Similarly for Karisik, simple everyday objects, interiors, and landscapes are recreated in realistic detail sustained by a quiet mood of reflection. In addition to his use of a skillful trompe l'oeil technique, the artist has heightened the importance of the subject using chiaroscuro, strong tonal contrasts between light an dark. Additional paintings in the Simplex Munditiis Series are available to pair with this lucious image of a plum. Ciba Karisik was born in Sarajevo in 1959. As a grandson of two artists, he revealed his creative inheritance at an early age. Invited to attend the Sarajevo Academy of Fine Art, Karisik completed his Bachelor and then his Master’s Degree in painting in 1985. He was an established artist, when war erupted in Bosnia in 1992 that eventually forced him to abandon his homeland to immigrate with his family to Canada. Since 1996, Karisik has produced a steady body of work exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions every year. His paintings are in private and corporate collections in Canada, the US, England and Europe.
