CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A painting depicting a rectangular grey tones image with defined edges over a fruit bowl still life background. The depicted image seems to recall a wartime photography of blurry soldiers on the field. Behind, the still life presents a blue braided basket containing green apples, bananas and oranges over a dark red background. The apposition of the two contrasting elements appears as a collage.
