Foreground Meaning

from Trendland

Sonia Rentsch’s Still Life Art

I like this image due to the colour co-ordination between the background and the foreground of the image, helping to create a quirky feel. I also like this image due to it's obvious meaning and how it makes us think about how everybody has a heart yet it's sometimes hidden underneath by people. The placement of the strawberry within the apple's core helps to create a lovely, affective image.


The Royal Greenwich Observatory in Greenwich, London, is the home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian of the World, making it the official starting point for each new day and year. It also happens to be on a hill with a marvelous view looking over London. To the right of photograph is Canary Wharf and as you move across to the left you can see the Gherkin, Tower 42 and even the London eye. In the foreground is the National Maritime Museum. - Jon Baker

On this screenprint, i really like the contrast between the red, white and black. I think the colours work really well together. I feel the meaning behind this print has changed, as the background is of a wig, and the foreground been a figure, representing more human form in an abstract way.
