Meaning & Analysis

The screen print Pears comes from the larger series, Space Fruit from the same year. A rare example of still life from the pop artists, Space Fruit draws on the long tradition of still life painting in the canon of western art. However, Warhol’s extreme lighting, collage, and abstraction make his fruit appear other-worldly, a product of outer-space. Throughout the series, Warhol experimented with the colour wheel, applying principles of saturation, hue, and complementary colours. This example is perhaps his most striking use of complementary colours, and pink and lime green stand opposite each other on the colour wheel.
