Tanya Marcuse’s 15-year project "Fruitless | Fallen | Woven" takes inspiration from the Biblical narrative of mankind’s fall from Eden. Throughout the series, elements of fruit in various stages of rot are used, symbolizing the forbidden fruit that led Adam and Eve to their downfall. Marcuse’s first publication, "Fruitless" (2005-10) features black and white images of fruit trees located in her home in Hudson Valley, depicting them through the various seasons. "Fallen" (2010-15) uses fruit from these trees, portrayed in various states of decay, to highlight the complex and detailed elements of the cycle of life and death. "Fallen #484" and "Fallen #45" are selections from this volume. They showcase an increasingly morbid, yet captivating narrative. Lastly, "Woven" (2015-19) explores these themes on a much larger scale, with some being as large as 5 x 13 feet, as Marcuse takes her detailed compositions to a higher level.
