Kiwi Country | Denise van der Burgh | Oil on Canvas

Surreal painting of Kiwi's and countryside.
Three and a half kiwi's float in the fore and background of a beautiful mountain landscape. The Kiwi's are cut in half, except for the lower left kiwi. This way we can see the beautiful green fruit of the Kiwi. In the background of the painting is a lake on the lower-left corner that is enveloped in a green and iced capped mountains. The sky on the upper third of the painting goes from a beautiful sunny day on the left to a stormy brooding sky on the right. The name  Kiwi Country is a play on the fruit and Nieuw Zealand, the people who are affectionately known as Kiwi's like the bird and fruit. In all of Denise's art, there is an interplay between the images, the name and all the associations that lead to a deeper narrative.


Denise's painting style is Contemporary Academic Realism. Denise has always been inspired by the Old Dutch Masters from the Seventeenth Century. She combines realism, with narrative and surreal painting subjects that is inspired by a single vivid colour. In this case, the green of the Kiwi fruit serves as the inspiration and vocal point of the painting.
