simmondsia vitra by vanlubeck simmondsia vitra by vanlubeck
oil on canvas, 120x80 cm.

Simmondsia vitra is closely related to the Jojoba shrub (Simmondsia chinensis), pronounced "ho-HO-bah". Jojoba is native to the Sonoran and Mojave deserts of Arizona, California, and Mexico. Simmondsia vitra however is primarily found in arid urban environments and produces an extremely toxic, oily substance.

A limited edition giclée print of this work is available through my site www.vanlubeck.com

I love it. The contrast on between the 'glass-drops' blowing colors and the blurred grey background work so well. The execution is just perfect as most of your pieces in your gallery.

Beautifully dangerous and exotically beautiful. I...can't think of other words. It's an intensely gorgeous painting. So I suppose I did think of other words.
