In this series we look at the incredible, over-sized oil paintings of fruit by Ohio artist, Dennis Wojtkiewicz [voy-KEV-itch]. While the realism is impressive, it’s Wojtkiewicz’s use of light and translucence that allows each painting to take on a meditative quality. Regarding his work, Wojtkiewicz states:

“Each painting is constructed by beginning with a monochrome underpainting in the complement of the featured subject. Subsequent layers of semi-opaque through to transparent colors follow with up to ten passes before the end result is achieved. The process is in essence a modified version of techniques used by Northern European Masters, Vermeer being of the greatest in influence.

Mr. Wojtkiewicz lives and works in Bowling Green, Ohio. He is a Professor at Bowling Green State University where he has taught painting and drawing in the School of Art since 1988. You can find his work at the following galleries:
