I always feel like I’m cheating when I’m at an art museum and read the text on the wall before looking at the art. But my eyes can’t help it—they meander over to glance at the title, artist name, and what the curator has to say about the work. It has taken me many years to unlearn this habit and experience visual art like a child again, absorbing what I see, not read.
So this is the shadow—the explanation for the images on the left. But I’m not going to give it to you on a silver platter. What’s even the point of showing you these images of apples? So many artists in history have already painted or photographed an apple! (wink, wink) You already know what an apple looks like—you probably even know what it tastes like! But do you know what this apple tastes like?⅋
