Bananas by Beatriz Simon is an abstract still life packed with character. Simon’s work tends to deliver bold color and multiple textures, and this piece is no exception. Bananas employs expressive brush techniques which add a hand made, human presence to the painting.
Describing her work as an impulse or feeling, Simon leaves the interpretation of each piece largely to the viewer. She finds inspiration in human nature as well as metaphors presented in everyday life. Food and table settings often come into play in Simon’s work, representing the human connection found in gathering around the table for a meal.
