Stack of 30 Apples

9.5 x 13 x 13 in.


“I lived on 51st Avenue in the1960s. On the corner there was a corner grocery store and there was a pile of apples. It was always there. I thought: ‘Wow, that’s really great. That’s a perfect shape: a pyramid. What a wonderful way to pile apples. I can make some – and they’ll be better. Redder! Dark ones and really red ones.”
