[06] Cézanne's tablecloth

This work is a take on Paul Cézanne’s trademark tablecloth (white with a red border) present in almost all of his still life. The original formats of his rectangular canvases have been reproduced and superposed in their exact sizes on a white tablecloth.

In Paul Cézanne’s stable rectangular composition, the tablecloth is a powerful contrast and an element of disorder; we are surprised by its complexity, its alien character among the compact objects on the table. It is like a mountain, a rocky creviced mass, or like some human figure, twisting and turning, with an inner balance of directions. Each bend, fold, and tone is strategically considered in relation to neighboring shapes and colors.
