toffee apple II

i went to the london art fair today for the first time and it was phenomenal. so much so that it inspired this blog!

this was one of the first pieces i saw and i have fallen madly in love with it. it's called toffee apple II and it's by russell west. it's a bit hard to tell from the image but it is made of many different small pieces of paint, created separately and then attached to wires one by one. the colours of paint on the piece of wood below it were then matched to the pieces above. the listed price was £3,250. it was my favourite piece of the day. absolutely stunning!
