Painting by Richard Harby
30cm x 40cm W & N Artists’ Oil Colour on Canvas
This small oil painting is part of a series of pictures that have conjuring & magic as a theme. The three bent spoons have been arranged in a close group, but without their shadows touching. A random look that was carefully choreographed to achieve a minimalist cool image. Uri Geller performed the spoon bending illusion on TV many times,insisting it was an actual mental power he possessed– a better trick would have been one where the bent spoons were straightened.
