David Tindle has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad. He was elected a member of the Royal Academy in 1979, and became a fellow of the Royal College of Art two years later.
This still life was prompted by a plastic spoon pushed through a polystyrene cup. Tindle has placed them on what looks like an altar. He sees the cup and spoon as a crucifix and the egg as a container of life. He wrote: ‘Perhaps I see religion frozen in time, but ready to break out of ordinary objects.’
