Rotten Fruits (melon, papaya, lemon, orange and apple)
◄ Overview

Guillaume Leblon

Rotten Fruits (melon, papaya, lemon, orange and apple)

The still life tradition in art has often been a context for mediations on temporality – often in the mode of vanitas, a moral prescription to avoid earthly vanity in the face of the passing of all things. French artist Guillaume Leblon, who is currently based in New York, engages with this legacy in his life-scale bronze sculptures depicting rotten fruits. Though the natural imagery is gorgeously rendered, this makes the putrescence all the more vivid. This quality imparts a unique and haunting atmosphere to the work – at once mournful, sensual, and monumental. 

Regular price $15,000
