Daisy Craddock’s diptychs of “Summer Produce,” like poetry, vividly communicate through images. Her faithful likenesses of unique specimens of apples, oranges, or cucumbers seem almost palpable— true in color and texture to the appearance of the skin and esh of each fruit or vegetable. And while her images are literally mute, metaphorically they shout an idyllic message of summer, freeze-framed at its height: fresh, ripe, succulent, and luscious.
