Apples and Oranges – A Homage to Darwin
Oil paint, 80 x 120 cm
This artwork explores the human tendency to rationalize meaning and measurement in order to occupy the ‘unknowns’in their environment with identifiable labels. The objects may represent incomprehensible and relative notions like time, death and space. But ultimately they are self-contradictory – like apples and oranges - because they represent the absurdity of the symbolism itself.
