Hopefully this image can give you a small idea of the scale of these works. I also think its always fun to see what an artwork looked like before it was finished, this was before i had started painting the figures, as you can see it looked a lttle alien like for a moment.

During the process I actually spent quite alot of the time sat on the floor, this allowed me to really get close to the artwork and add those finer details, particularly with in the more spongey areas of the lemon. Don't be fooled by how clear the floor looks in this image, the area was clear for the photograp, ordinarily there was alot more paints and palettes around the paintings.

A SPONGY LEMON MEANS
IT IS EASIER TO SQUEEZE

WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS

MAKE YOUR OWN GIANT ONE

Claes Oldenburg holding his toothpaste while I (Anastasia Mullis) hold my giant lemon

Although not technically an official photograph of his work displayed, I found this image of Claes Oldenburge with his oversized toothpaste extremely interesting. The relationship between the artist and his work is quite joyful to see. The way he is holding onto the toothpaste shows a comfortable relationship with his artwork, he isn’t holding it like its fragile. His focussed expression on the path ahead also creates a sense of normality for the artist. It was this playful and agile relationship with Oldenburge and his work that I also wanted to show in my own work and so I kept this image in mind when positioning for my photos. The cadid natue of this particular photo also mirrors the one taken of me, mid-transportation of the lemon.
