Forbidden Fruit


Story About This Painting

Painting on Silk

Size: 112 x 112cm

“Forbidden Fruit” is an abstract batik work that is based on associations with the fruit that we all like and know well. Some even consider that a pomegranate, not an apple, was the fruit of knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden. Its colour and form encouraged me to create this artwork. Cold red colour of the fruit on the grey-blue geometric background creates sophisticated and complex painting. 

This artwork is central one in my series of abstract-associative paintings “Fruit Mix”, which are intended for decoration of modern spacious interiors. Made using complicated author’s technique of batik and painting. This artwork is painted on the silk cloth with professional German silk paints, batik textile dyes, waxes, etc. (KREUL Javana). The paint is water based, has no smell, and is fade and wash resistant (after fixing). The painted silk cloth is glued to canvas and is designed to be fixed on two metal bars (shipped with artwork), one attached to the top side of the painting, another one to its bottom side for the balance, making it ready to hang, like a gobelin (please see examples of hanging of similar works at “Me at work” section of my page). Signed on the front. Certificate of Authenticity is included. This painting will be shipped carefully and safely rolled and put in a durable plastic tube for transportation.
