Apple Tree
Apple Tree, 1995, Oil/Linen, 25'"x 18"
. . . The tension between the bland suburban environment and the nature which transcends it while remaining bound by it is eloquently epitomized in Apple Tree, 1995. The skimpy green tree holds on for dear life against the threatening spikes of the white picket fence. The spider web is a wonderful emblem of Hrehov's ambivalence about his environment: the large web looks like a radiant sun, but it is of course a symbol of death and decay.. . .
