Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I did a creative food photography project and ended up with these beautiful photographs of a pink Jerusalem garlic. As soon as I saw these images through the lens, I immediately knew they were going to become large scale realistic oil paintings. The intriguing colours, the twisted lines, the reflection and luminosity in the image absolutely blew me away. I couldn't wait to start painting! As I painted the whole image just unfolded from an ordinary garlic to a magnificent flower like image. I kept the background quiet dark, even though it is still saturated with intense colours, to create a contrast between this beautiful unfolding subject that is so unexpected and our traditional preconceived ideas of what and where we can find beauty. Unravelling Beauty is only the first of a series of paintings that will be exploring this subject matter and technique.
