Here my work portrays some important characteristics of French people: their revolutionary past & irreverent character, and love for simple food! A basket of fruit in the kitchen, (commonplace in many homes), is set off by a background that explores the impertinent side of the French. "Liberation" a daily French newspaper, is representative of the irreverent French character - so important in the French psyche. "Liberation" was founded in Paris by Jean-Paul Sartre and Serge July following the May 1968 protest movements. And, the satirical journal Charlie Hebdo reminds us of how revolutionary and derisive ideas are very much a part of French culture.

In this still life, we feel the two strong, but contradictory, impulses in a typical French life. The first: following the traditional rituals dealing with food, meals and hospitality. The second: enthusiastically encouraging irreverent and politically incorrect ideas.
