Ugo Rondinone's still.life (apple) is a highly realistic, lead-filled, painted bronze sculpture. As the title still.life suggests, Rondinone's multiple represents a self-contained, frozen moment—weighted and isolated with lead. This apple is an object of desire: it is a sublime example of trompe l'oeil, which reflects a long tradition of still life, from the Dutch masters to Cézanne.

Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone has spent the last 20 years examining the psychic and emotional nature of even the most banal events that occur in real life. An experimenter in many media, Rondinone's vast body of work includes trance-like mandala paintings, large-scale drawings from natural life, and multi-channel video installations.

Since 1997, Rondinone has been making neon-lit, rainbow-colored signs from phrases he appropriates from pop songs and everyday exclamations that are joyous affirmations of love and life, including the sculpture Hell, Yes which spells out the title in gigantic rainbow letters on the facade of the New Museum of Contemporary Art in Manhattan's Bowery district.
