“Grapes are the most difficult fruit to paint.” – Eric Christensen

Marcus Ashley Gallery features a comprehensive collection of Eric Christensen art. Folks who are familiar with his work may not be aware that the internationally renowned and acclaimed painter is also a gourmet cook. This talent manifests in his illustrations of fruits, breads and cheeses, which he portrays in remarkable three-dimensional representation. Thus, his hyper-realistic watercolors are often collected by chefs and restaurant owners.

High Marks, an intimate still life, exhibits Christensen’s passion for food and wine. It is his salute to Joseph Phelps Insignia red, the pride of Napa Valley which has received the perfect score of 100 points from three different wine tastings. The artist’s impeccable imitation of real-life images would be the envy of any shutterbug whose lens could fail to capture such authenticity.

And that is not even the best part of this portrait. Reflections of both natural and artificial light and other objects in the room are flawlessly depicted on the glass and silver surfaces. These features are what keep Christensen’s admirers coming back for more.
