Bodegón Con Manzanas Secas

Part of the compelling nature in preserving food lies in the idea that beauty implicit in the original item will remain over time; this might not always be the case but sometimes it does happen, like these slices of Red Delicious apples. Not only does the process ensure longevity, it enhances the flavor if done appropriately.

"Bodegón Con Manzanas Secas" (Still Life With Dried Apples) was inspired by the many, many food scenes in the works of art of Baroque masters like Zurbarán, van Beyeren or Velasquez. The meta-idea is captured here with a digital camera instead of a brush, preserving the preserves, offering a glimpse of an enduring quality of both the electronic format and the real, tangible, "conserved for future consumption" fruit.
