Two more views from the exhibition 'Closer. The megarealism by Tjalf Sparnaay' in museum De Fundatie in Zwolle. Here a painting of a giant hamburger..
..and another one showing a plain cheese sandwich. Sparnaay states: "My paintings are meant to enable the spectator to re-experience reality, to rediscover the essence of an object that has become so ordinary. I want to reduce it to the DNA of the universal structure, in all its beauty. I refer to it as the 'beauty of the everyday'."
A final (and non-food) post about Sparnaay tomorrow. In the meantime, if you like, there is more to read about the painter HERE.
