透明水彩 Transparent watercolor｜73 x 83 cm｜2006
The emphasis lies in the stark contrasts between the red and black of the cloth, the yellow and red of fruits, and freshness versus decay. In terms of composition, the steady apples and the unsteady banana make another contrast as well. An archaic ceramic in mixed colors is inserted between the yellow banana and red apples to bestow a sense of stability in colors amidst the contrasts.
