The Apple of My Eye

The Apple of My Eye was inspired by a photograph I took in 2009 of a friend’s daughters. The girl, Chanè was eating a toffee apple and had the most beautiful big eyes that just captivates you, and I wanted to capture that in my art.

I used acrylic paint with a monochrome colour scheme for the portrait and for contrast in the background I used recycled Nespresso capsules and Softi candy wrappers. The recycled materials were cut and arranged to form a pattern in an array of different colours. I want people to admire the beauty of the piece and to see waste in another light as waste should not be wasted but can be turned into something beautiful.
