Tutti frutti

I love the paintings of  Barbara Kacicek , she paints marvellous fruits, and rocks and other things.
I often check out her website and it is always a delight to see her new creations. I find her paintings so sensuous and I love the way she seems to pick up simple and ordinary subjects and  infuses  a strong and deep underlying  meaning.

I paint fruits differently , in a more ornamental manner certainly but I have pleasure doing it. My fruit paintings are amongst the ones I prefer in my production.
I have been including fruits paintings in my "collections" for quite some time now.

In 2003 I started with casein on a very absorbant lime wash base...

Apples I 90x62 cm

Apples II 90x62 cm

Basket I 90x62 cm

Basket II 90x62cm

Bergeade 50x50 cm

...then, in 2006, 2007  I  exhibited in a gallery in the US and I decided to work with acrylics on a gessoed background...

Cider  40x30cm

A good year  28x40cm

Ripe I 40x40cn

Ripe II 40x40cm

and finally a couple of years ago I started a new series with a mix of classical ornamentation and fragments of XVIIth centurey still lifes,   in casein for the ornament and oils for the fruits, like this one for example.

Grappa 150x85cm

  1. I love the grapes Pascal! The way the light hits the skin, causing some to appear translucent and others dusty and dense. Wonderful executions!

  2. I have always loved everything grape related!! Beautiful Pascal!
