Ohio-based artist Dennis Wojtkiewicz creates stunningly intricate depictions of fleshy fruits using oil painting techniques. Exploring the sensitivity of time through a meditative work process, Wojtkiewicz captures his subjects in hyperrealistic detail.

The close-ups consist of various fruits that have been sliced in half to showcase their fleshy forms. The translucent quality of the citrus slices and the juicy interiors have been blown up onto these oversized canvases. From afar and even up-close, many would be fooled into believing these are digital photographs rather than traditional paintings. The images can be subconsciously read as sexual due to the silhouettes emulating bodily parts. Using a series of underpainting in monochromatic tones, Wojtkiewicz builds his images up using a multitude of layers.

Using techniques similar to the great Vermeer, Dennis Wojtkiewicz produces artful depictions of everyday objects.
