Joe HARGAN - Eve's Apple

Talking about the painting Eve''s Apple'' Joe Hargan says:

As the title suggests you see Eve in all her natural beauty with an apple on her head.
This hints at the biblical Eve and the symbolism of the forbidden fruit, sexual and uninhibited by cultural norms.
The glass dome makes her an exhibit in a contemporary conceptual art piece.
On the wall, two portraits by Velasquez rather darkly dressed, austere and disapprovingly looking down on Eve.
The Piano acts as a plinth for Eve but it is also a joyous, sensual and spiritually uplifting instrument.
The books for learning and knowledge act as plinths for the ubiquitous burger and the glass of wine represents the fruits of your labours.
Humorously the dog stands by unaffected and quizzical about the human condition.
