Contemporary realist painter Roy Hodrien presents a detailed still life composition evoking the 17th Century Dutch masters style. The artist builds the composition through several layers of thinly applied oil paint to produce translucent effects which make the artwork incredibly realistic. The genuine zest of the mandarins are conveyed through a palpable myriad of greatly precise brushstrokes and are arranged around a desirable silverware bowl and wine glass that are imbued with impressive reflectivity. A beguiling mirroring of the artist is implied on the bowls surface, adding a further dynamic element to the study. The richness and sumptuousness of the display is accurately portrayed by the artist with sensitivity, making for an attractive work of art. This original piece is painted in oils on board, hand signed by the artist and framed, ready to be displayed.
