THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The colorful nature of the apples in the Apple Flavor painting is a stark contrast to the symbolism that apples possess. Apples often stand for sin, for temptation; they represent our dark desires as human beings. Yet the colors here speak of life and liberty, of love and renewal; a sort of reward that comes from going down. The way that these apples are nearly falling off of the edge of the table suggests the way that sin can ultimately make one feel misguided and as if they are only a step away from a dangerous edge.
