Quinces are thought to be ‘golden apples’ in Greek Mythology. They have been cultivated for thousands of years and ancient civilisations prized them for their taste and fragrance, and also for their poetic form. In this representation, the artist interprets each fruit as an individual element. She creates an underdrawing with charcoal and renders them alive with multiple layers of pastel colour pigments, paying special attention to highlight the bulbous protrusions. The partially uncoloured segment provides contrast and perspective to this colourful and animated artwork.
