The apple shape is the essence of purity. An apple has no negative meaning no innuendo. It’s just an apple. Here it has been transposed into something a little darker something a little more mature. It is no longer pure: its colour is black a colour associated with formality and sophistication. Yet its form remains recognisable – as an apple. The wall art reflects many facets: purity vs maturity virtue vs vice and natural form vs artifice.
