This piece turned out to be quite a surprise for me. I liked it from the thumbnail as an eye-pleasing still life and clicked on it to see the technique in detail... And then I saw them -- the living fruits, staring out in fear, desperation, frustration, or just tiredness. The artist lures us skillfully into this bizarre surreal world, disguised as a simple still life, and we never see it coming from afar, until we come closer.

The oil technique is somewhat rough, and the colors are a bit simplistic, but the brilliant work with lights and shades fully compensates all the small vices. The cold tones of the painting bring a sense of cleanness and freshness, but the disturbing presence of the living apples quickly changes the mood into goose-bumping chillness. That's the secret of this fascinating piece: it manages to be pleasing and disturbing at the same time. A rare accomplishment, I must say.

I admit, I've seen anthropomorphic fruits before, so this painting is no big news for me, but it's surely one of the best executions of this quite popular surrealistic theme.

This piece wonderfully demonstrates how thrilling a naked female body can be even without actually showing the all-so-familiar "feminine parts" usually seen in nude artwork. The delicate shading conveys the fragility and slenderness of a woman's back perfectly, setting the right mood and leaving the rest to our imagination.

I don't know if it's intentional or not, but the manner of hair drawing (a bit different from that of the body) makes it look wet, with its ends soaking in the foam-like watercolor texture, which gives the artwork an additional charm. My only criticism here is about that ring of hair near the elbow, which looks too perfectly rounded among the sheer randomness. In fact, it looks more like a slipped-off hair band of some sort. I find it a bit distracting, but it's certainly too small a detail to affect the overall impact.

The golden light, gently spotlighting the model, works in perfect harmony with the seasoned tones of the background to establish a calm and delicate atmosphere. Together with the subtle technique, it all sums up to achieve that genuine feel of a classic renaissance drawing, full of timeless beauty and serenity.
