Still Lifes, artworks by Wolfgang Widmoser, Austrian Surrealist Painter, Bali, Indonesia.
A still life is an arrangement of objects on a table.
A painting is an arrangement of colored brushstrokes on a canvas.
The objects contain a specific energy.
When flooded by light they are clearly visible to the observer.
Contemplating their shapes certain qualities are revealed.
A story emerges as the individuals start to interact.
– Look at me – the marble exclaims – the light concentrates in my heart
and gets reflected on my skin as I mirror the sun –
– I unfold like a galaxy – the shell is singing – and my skin is filled with diamonds –
sending flickering rainbows across my surface –
The plate is resting in woven fabric with intriguing patterns and dreams –
I am the garden of Eden
A playground for all my visitors
– a shell in a plate –
– a baby in a womb –
– a galaxy in the universe –
