Red Apple by Jesse Vandenburgh, 1985

1,200.00

Oil on canvas, about 42” x 41”.  

In the tradition of Van Eyck and Velazquez, Vandenburgh paints a painting that includes a reflection of what is not included in the illusion of space within the painting forcing the viewer to engage with the work as though they are in the painting or the painting has no beginning and end. Are we reflected in the mirror? Can we grab that apple? Is that chair available to us? Is the young men whose face is obscured behind us? Truly stunning work. Foreshortened Table and chair are genius and look so fresh and crisp against a minimal white wall. The illusion of space an the reflection of that space adds dimension and size to a limited space, dissolving the wall behind it instead of accentuating it.
