Apple Rings
"By placing Saturn-like rings around an Earthly apple, I hoped to shrink the vast distance between these two planets. I also wanted to create a jarring collision of elements out of their normal context, which gives the painting a surrealistic quality. Doubtless the choice of an apple as the subject originated in my admiration for Isaac Newton and the falling fruit that inspired his notions about gravity."
