Bananen | Denise van der Burgh | Stil-life of fruit

These bananas have an art historical history of an example of the transient nature of the human condition. Any bruised fruit (or rotten foodstuff, bubbles, musical instruments or musicians) would be an allegorical stand-in for the impermanence of life in paintings during the Dutch Golden Age. These subjects were also a great example of an artists ability and technical expertise. A bruised banana is a very difficult subject to paint. We have curated this piece as a magnificent example of contemporary figurative art. The bananas are beautiful in their colour and technical execution. In a room, the painting can simply be bananas with deep colours for a fun addition to a room, but to a keen eye, they allude to a greater art historical significance. 
Van der Burgh is an artist with a law and art historical background. Her specialism is realistic and surrealistic oil paintings that all start from her fascination with an object or a colour. 

If bruised fruit and existential piety is not your cup of tea. A contemporary issue note. The cavendish (all 🍌) is currently in a crisis. The Panama disease that wiped out its predecessors is well on its way in destroying the current banana/cavendish/ 🍌 crops. So this might also be one of the last paintings of the banana, as we have known it these last 100 or so years.
