Apple Valise
A symbol of education, a preventative antidote to every infirmity, and the forbidden fruit that tempted Eve and Adam to fall from grace, the apple- with its endless associations- is the inspiration and the focus of this valise by Astrid Preston. From green to red, from flower to fruit, from above and from below, Preston brings the apple to life with a series of miniature oil paintings that are attached to the inside cover of the very suitcase she emigrated with in 1952. A bowl of apples, nestled atop a velvet tablecloth sits in the bottom of the suitcase, creating an instant still life and referencing this popular genre throughout the history of Western painting.
