First Fruits is in essence the first fruits of Yvonne Reddick’s labour. This exhibition of fruit and vegetable still-life oil paintings is her first public exhibition. A studious and meticulous painter, she only recently began her art practice. Although new to painting, she is in many ways very traditional. Inspired by European Old Master painters, such as Caravaggio, Rubens, Rembrandt and Vermeer, she slowly builds her oil paintings. Each small scale work is made up of many layers of paint. The resulting works seem to both glow with light and give off a depth and intensity of saturated colour. Reddick’s first series of paintings is a sure sign of promising fruit to come.
Works in The Cube are available for purchase through The Gallery Store.
