The lemon, often-utilized by famed still life painters was rarely the focus of a composition. More typically, this citrus was being abused for its compositional qualities. Its ovoid form of highly saturated yellow was used to balance the more dominant piling of apples, oranges and pears. The lemon, I felt, never got its day in the sun
This video is my tribute to the lemon. A piece of fruit with a long, diluted history. An innocent little orb of sourness, often used to describe broken down cars or flavor dead fish.
