I spy with my little eye…a pear, an apple, and a pomegranate. Can you see it? Camouflaged and marbleized are these playful fruits created by artist Corey Bartle-Sanderson. His motive is to have viewers take notice of these everyday ingredients, appreciate their shape, color and form. The photo-series entitled Supermarket Simulacrum II, makes evident how simple it is to pass by familiar items instead of appreciating their inner and outer beauty. The monochromatic pattern carried onto the fruit disguises it until cut open to reveal bursting color!
At the heart of my work is a fascination with the mundaneness of the everyday.
