The more I focused on them, the more fascinating they became. In comparison to my earlier, more conventional still lifes, the new paintings transcend a technical mastery to elicit more meaningful associations.
Dennis Wojtkiewicz took his still-life paintings to another level when he decided to work with fruit. Attracted to the inside of pieces of everyday fruit—the seeds, veins, and the translucent flesh and color changes—Dennis renders them in large-scale using oil on canvas. The most amazing aspect, though, is not only the detail of each piece, but the way he incorporates a light effect that makes them seem to glow from the surface. His series mainly include Citrus, Melon, Lemon, and Peach.
