There are layers of fences and walls in these paintings, as well as windows, doors and ladders. The tomatoes and pears represent different groups who also have things in common. In #1, they are lined up face-to-face, like a stand-off. In #2, they are mixed together. One loses track of the differences, especially between the green tomatoes and the pears. In #3, the groups are separate, not necessarily confrontational, but limited by sticking with their own kind.
