Coral Bean - The red seeds of Coral Bean (Erythrina herbacea) remain nestled in their open pod in the back yard of our vacation rental near Pawleys Island. They are toxic to humans, and since they have persisted into the late Winter it seems likely that there are no animals there that eat them.
Exploring a wide range of organic forms within a visually cohesive fruit and vegetables theme, Sucha's artwork contains a wide range of textures, shapes and patterns. Shadows and highlights communicate vast depth, with tone built up in layers. Compositions emphasise not only the fruit and vegetables, but the deep shadows and spaces between them.
