About The Artwork

In this oil painting, we see a person sitting inside their vegetable stall, surrounded by crates of fresh produce. There are no customers in sight, but the warmth of the sunlight casts a soft glow on the colourful array of vegetables. The scene is one of stillness and quiet contemplation, as the person waits patiently for customers to arrive. Through this painting, I tried to capture the essence of a quiet moment in a bustling market. The focus is on the beauty and richness of the natural world, as represented by the fresh vegetables on display. The absence of customers serves to highlight the solitude and contemplative nature of the scene, and encourages us to pause and appreciate the simple pleasures of life. The use of oil paint allows for rich, vibrant colours and subtle gradations of light and shadow. The brushstrokes are loose and expressive, conveying a sense of movement and energy despite the stillness of the scene. Overall, "The Greengrocer" is a testament to the beauty and tranquility that can be found in everyday moments, and invites all of us to slow down and savour the quiet beauty of the world around us.

Inspiring from my own life in the city, I quietly watch how humans, animals, and the environment interact. I try to capture the essence of a moment and discovers what truly matters in life. With dark hues and bold brushstrokes, I convey both motion and obscurity, evoking a specific memory and creating an emotional resonance.
