This original hyper-realism painting by Heidi von Faber depicts a soothing and calming still life study. Evoking the talent of old Dutch masters, the artist achieves an impressive degree of palpable detail in the composition which involves delectable citrus fruits stored in a glowingly golden bowl and a glassware set, strikingly illuminated against an extremely dark background. Imbued with traditional painting techniques, the modern subject matter and dramatic interplay between light and dark give the artwork a contemporary feel and glamorised brilliance which bestows the objects with an amplified significance. The artist paints using acrylics to convey the items in the simple arrangement in saturated, glossy tones that emphasises the elegance and style in their presence. The artist honestly renders the items in a simple and unembellished way that exudes a calming and peaceful sincerity. This piece is painted on stretched linen, hand signed by the artist and framed, ready to be displayed.
