Inspired by artist Remedios Varo’s painting (oil on canvas), “Still Life Reviving,” (1963), “Purple Still” refers to the low senses (feminine senses), in a surrealist form. It implies the mystic properties of the daily rituals and womanhood (female alchemist). In contradiction to Varo’s format (painting), that primarily engages the sense of sight, “Purple Still” engages the low sense of touch, yet refers to the themes addressed by Varo. “Purple Still” evokes everyday life elements and the low senses (to touch, to taste) in a surreal form. It is a celebration of life, of the creative force, the low senses and of the feminine divine.This artwork requires preservation care and comes in a custom casing made of glass or plexiglass.
