Spotlight Art – Still Life (In the Manner of a 1970s Cookbook) – A painting by Phil McAloon

Phil McAloon's paintings

It was only as I neared the crescendo of this symphony in brown that I realised it looks like the cover of a 1970s cookbook. Appropriately, I modelled it on Chardin. I say appropriately because French cooking seems to have had a stranglehold on Australian dinner parties in the 1970s. For ten long years the middle classes appear to have lived solely off duck a l’orange and French onion soup, interspersed with the occasional fondue party. It is a wonder anyone survived.

In a secondhand frame I bought for $3 from the op shop.

Spotlight Art – Greek Salad – Painting of the Day by Toni Silber-Delerive

The image depicts a painting titled Greek Salad by the artist Toni Silber-Delerive. The work is a semi-realistic still life painting capturing the salad-scape of a  Greek Salad. It possesses the colours and shapes of a traditional greek salad with its tomatoes, feta cheese , olives and cucumbers. What makes it so interesting is the oversized proportions and flattening the picture plane when seeing it from directly above.
