A dedication to precision and innovation is what propelled Kate Reid to create Australia’s best croissanterie Lune — each pastry they create is a work of art in itself containing thousands of delicate layers made from the finest ingredients. 

Sharing in her vision of excellence comes this photorealistic oil-painted rendition of Lune’s Coconut Pandan Twice-Baked Croissant by artist Simon Fitzsimon.

Painted in Simon’s signature trompe-l’oeil style with such detail, the ingredients appear to project forward from the canvas, like you could almost reach out and grab them. 

A truly out-of-this-world piece of art.

Kate Reid & Simon Fitzsimon

THE CHEF:
Kate Reid wasn’t always a baker – far from it, in fact. After studying Aerospace Engineering at university, she followed her lifelong passion for Formula 1 racing and became an aerodynamicist for the Williams F1 team in the UK in the mid-2000s.

In 2008, though, she wanted to change direction, and returned to her native Melbourne to find her new niche – pastry. After working in the cafes and bakeries of Melbourne and a stint in Paris, she knew that she wanted to create something perennially popular, and take her skills to a new level, and so, Lune Croissanterie was born.

THE ARTIST:
Tully Moore's "Simon Fitzsimon" paintings are based on imagery from the fruit and vegetable distributor he works at.

His works reference traditional trompe l’oeil still life paintings that rely upon biographic notations that place them in an environment that reflects on its place of origin or with a specific aim at giving an autobiographical reference to an individual.

The painting's effect act as a ruse to convince another of its or the painters commercial asset, using their artistic skills as a means of commerce for over three decades.
