Additional Information

This small still life was created in acrylic paint on linen that was primed and stretched over tile. The dry paint was sealed with a spray-on matte varnish. It is custom-framed (removable).

The Story:

It happened spontaneously whilst in thew studio with friends. I was laying on a pile of cushions printed with various manipulations of Frida Kahlo paintings and eating a fig, commenting on how I thought that by the time I had decided what project to start I would run out of hours. I was about to take another bite of my fig, but stopped because it was so pretty. I jumped off Frida Kahlo’s face and started pacing around the studio for something to paint on with one hand, holding the fig in the other. I glued some linen to the nearest small surface I could find and rested the fig on the lid of a turps jar before painting it. Luckily, we still had some figs left, as I ate the model and needed another fig for the background (didn’t look right with just one).

In the same day, I completed a group project with artist Josh Butler, jumped off and 8m cliff into Lake Macquarie, stood up on water skii’s for the first time and drank spiced coffee from Jerusalem with family and friends.
