Dull, drooping and shriveled thistles and turgid and exuberant rosehip buds, eager to display all their fragrant and luxuriant freshness; oppy and burnished tulips and ourishing peonies; explosive oranges and faded greens; decadence and radiance, autumn and summer, shadow and light, life and death.
In Lilla Tabasso’s hyper-realistic oral compositions, the contradictions, imperfections and fears of the human being are embodied in the most delicate and ephemeral creations on earth, taking shape in glass, symbol of fragility. Alongside the spring powers in their riot of colors, vigor and luster, the Vanitas ourish, enhancing the sense of impurity and weakness of nature. Even in the crumpled leaf, in the twisted branch, in the power that bends the corolla and abandons itself to its demise, there is poetry, love, art.
