Artist’s Statement

Isn’t it beautiful? Whatever you do, don’t bite into it. I used harsh dark lighting and a wooden surface to add drama and set the tone for the scene.  The aesthetic was inspired by the great masters of the Renaissance period. I took a photograph of 4 stages of an apple by slowly eating it until I reached the core. This being the first stage, unbitten.
