Magic Kitchen, 2014. Oil on linen; 38 x 56 cm

Blitz' home kitchen in the evening light inspired this still life. Against the backdrop of classic yellow kitchen tiles he painted his wife's collection of antique kitchen utensils that she still uses today. Most have been passed down, generation to generation, through her family but the mezzaluna was discovered at a flea market in Switzerland.

Magic Kitchen reached the last round of judging as a shortlisted work to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2015.
