Silancio is an artwork belonging to Marcela Ramírez-Aza‘s collection.
The forbidden fruit. “Silencio” could be classified as “a baroque abstract still-life”. Look at the mention of a table, or a plane, or face (on the left), and the long white “drapery” coming down from the high and assembling as a base on the plane, to come down later towards the underneath.
And above: arcane objects, taking shape by outbursts of red-violet and scarlet colour, starting from the splendid one and “flaming” put in the center: the forbidden fruit, the bestower of good and evil. The basic shades are dark and light, almost humble, with a mention of a landscape on the right, so that the visual impact of the abstraction is the one of a very lively, bursting strength, that breaks the silence and attracts attention to the wonder of the watching eye.
