Tafelgenoten

This trompe l’oeil, inspired by still life, comprises many different elements and is a tribute to Carolina Wilcke’s Dutch heritage.

 

According to the artist, “unique individuals make a company on the table, just like the company at the table. Differences of color, material, skin, size and shape, but still a group.”

 

This piece not only raises a conversation among observers, but a dialogue is also established between the different elements of ‘Tafelgenoten’.
