Celery SoupMonday, September 12, 2011
Thrifty. Delicate. Homely. Quick.
Food painting artwork30 x 30cm oil on linen. As this soup manages to be easy, delicate, robust and thrifty all at once, I went looking for inspiration on how to portray these qualities and tie celery into this somehow. And so I went all the way back to the textile designs of the 1950's when thrifty homemade soup was the only soup. I think I landed on a simple, bold yet delicate, retro composition based on celery that's just right.
