Single Subject/Many Mediums… Pomegranates

When looking for art to purchase or feature I often chose a single subject and then look at how it is rendered across many different mediums by different artists. This is a great way to see not only the differences between mediums, but a range of styles. Looking at art this way is a good way to help zero in on what you’re looking for.

My first post is about discovering pomegranates. Pomegranates make a great subject. They are colorful, can be detailed or simple. Pomegranates are an ancient fruit that has a lot of symbolic meaning across many cultures. Therefore they appear in art from ancient times to the present.

Below are some wonderful original pieces featuring pomegranates. All of these pieces are affordable. As with all of my featured art/artists these are pieces I would purchase for myself or as a gift.

  • Pomegranate Watercolor Painting by Nicole Kristiana FitzGibbon. This is original artwork of a Pomegranate, done in gouache, gold acrylic and watercolor on fine heavy watercolor paper.

  • Pomegranates by Shann Spishak. Original one-of-a-kind pastel painting.

  • Pomegranate Seeds by Natalia Moroz. This is a hand pulled linocut, from a limited edition of 50.

  • Pomegranate (elevation) by Lauren Doran. This is an original handmade Polaroid transfer. It was created with Polaroid 669 film which was transferred onto Arches watercolor paper.

  • Pomegranates by Isabel Farrell. Original watercolor 11-1/2 x 8-1/2 painted on archival 140# paper.

  • Demeter and Persephone by Stephanie Martin. This print is an original etching inked carefully in different colors.

  • Pomegranate Past by Jane LaFazio. This is a 10×15 inch art quilt created with layers of sheer organza, cheesecloth, and tulle. It’s printed with images of pomegranates and heavily hand stitched.

  • Pomegranate by Robert of Green Light Goods. This painting was created using an extremely limited and challenging palette of only two colors plus black and white.
