Gemma Gené, an architect and visual artist from Barcelona, has created a stunning series of paintings and drawings with a simple conceit: objects wrapped in or made of metal. The effect is dazzling because of her next-level ability to render the highlights and shadows of the metal, as you can see from the incredible details in the pineapple above.
The two aspects of her work that I really enjoy are the wood panels she uses, which certainly bring a wonderful contrast to the overall composition, a balance of the natural and manufactured. I also appreciate the fact that she paints in the shadows and subtle reflections of the objects onto the wood panels, grounding the objects and giving them even more depth.
Beautifully executed, hopefully she continues to make more of these.
