Paulette Van Roeken’s simple still life,  Arrangement with Citron, looks less arranged and more like a natural occurrence, like undisturbed clutter. Under a cool, direct light source Roekens skillfully handles surfaces like the transparency of sea green glass jar and the watermelon’s intricate pattern. The richness in color of the centered fruits and vegetables captures the attention from their surroundings, dulled in comparison.
