  • About the work

Oil and aluminium.

Part of a series of paintings of ancient Roman statues, this work depicts the torso of a female figure immersed in plants that are also present in the Corsini Botanical Garden. The statue represents the remains of Eve in the Garden of Eden.
The camouflaged serpent, which may be spotted hiding between the leaves below the torso, succeeded in tempting Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, with the promise that it would make her and Adam “as gods”. The deceptive serpent planted seeds of doubt in their minds, tricking them into neglecting God, whose image they were created in, thus causing them to lose what they once inherently had. The soft depictions of nature and antiquity compose an image that counteracts the industrial material the work is painted on. The surrounding flora that frame the painting were once as green and vibrant as those in the painting. Like a memory of something that was once there but is now lost in the crevices of time, what is left to remember this scene by is on a machine-made metal tablet.
