About the Item

Additional information:  Oil Paint on Canvas Sold framed Image size: Height: 4cm (1.57 in) Width: 4cm (1.57 in) Complete size of unframed painting Height: 5cm (1.97 in) Width: 5cm (1.97 in) Depth: 1cm (0.39 in) Framed Size: Height: 15cm (5.91 in) Width: 15cm (5.91 in) Depth: 3cm (0.98 in) Artist BIO: Dani Humberstone uses the symbolism of ripe fruit to illustrate the narrative. Painting directly from life allows her to translate three dimensions into two and capture the essence or life force of the subject. Individual fruits damage easily so as they slowly age she tracks their gradual decay in the painting as she works. Fruit has been used metaphorically in art and language for centuries. It has helped Illustrate Fairy Tales, Mythology, The Bible and Shakespeare. An apple in Renaissance painting was symbolic of ‘a fallen woman’ and we still use fruit analogies to describe ourselves and our lives today. In her own work the artist also uses elements of abstraction, landscape or line drawing to hint at a deeper narrative within and opening the door to unseen possibilities beyond the immediate image. Dani Humberstone paints in oils, predominantly Old Holland Classic Oilcolour - using transparent glazes over opaque colour which creates intense levels of luminosity and depth. Strong light and shade, chiaroscuro, give atmosphere and tone.
