About the work :

Portrait on fruit (3) is a work by the Belgian artist Julien Delagrange.

With the Portrait on Fruit series, the artist examines the relation of genres in painting. The reason why the painting is titled portrait on fruit — and not portrait on still life — is because the face is an actual portrait by a different artist or photographer, whereas the fruit is painted from life. It takes on different realities, but also questions the major genres of the still life and the portrait. Furthermore, the recurring motif of fruit examines the iconography of fruit in art history as a symbol of wealth and abundance, but also of sin and decay.

Belgian artist Julien Delagrange's oil paintings and charcoal drawings explore the human condition and experience from a universal, contemporary and anthropological perspective. His purely figurative language adapts to the concepts he wishes to examine in his works: metaphysics, existentialism, (post)modernism, spirituality, and syncretism. His intellectual work as an art critic and his artistic practice as a painter are intertwined, each influencing and feeding the other.
