Beautiful, sharp colors pop off the canvas in Tom Wesselmann Still Life, 1988. A luscious and sweet bowl of fruit sits on a table surrounded by fragrant and brightly colored flowers. Patches of white on the top of the red apple and the bananas reflect the light and make the fruit shine. Dark grapes peak from behind the more warmly colored fruit, adding delicious contrast with the oranges, yellows, reds, and pear green. There is little linear detail; instead Wesselmann creates the forms with brilliant colors. The intense multiplicity of the orange colored lilies shows a remarkable talent with color on Wesselmann's part. He has also placed the lilies in a tall glass vase, and we can see the green stems change color in and out of the water. Incredibly, we can also see the life-like refraction of the water - a stunning detail that speaks to Wesselmann's genius. He adds a second blue vase behind the first, giving depth to image and also using it as an opportunity to add another burst of color. The contrast of the sweetly pink petunias against the charcoal black tea kettle adds more power to the screenprint. Everywhere that the eye touches Wesselmann has created wondrous colors and sharp contrasts with the stark white background making for a visually striking image.
Created in 1988, this screenprint is hand signed by Tom Wesselmann (Cincinnati, 1931 - New York City, 2004) in pencil and numbered from the edition 88 of 100.
