Cenotes (and other waters)

Last updated on February 26, 2024

“Inspired by nature in the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico, the works of Vero Murphy’s series, Cenotes, are boldly energetic. She exploits color to the fullest as a structural component and as the very extension of the liquidity of water that is filled with shimmering hues. Through rapid brushstrokes and the layering of mixed materials ─acrylics, oils, charcoal and paper─ she seems to exclaim in visual prose a mode of wonder ─ often forgotten─ in the face of this world, ephemeral, as the Aztecs knew, but full of beauty”. 

“Sustainability is also an inspiring force in the creation of her Cenotes: Vero Murphy leads us towards this particular natural treasure by reflecting about the prodigy of the water hidden in millenary underground caves in her painting, and calls us to reflect on the use of our most valuable resource for the sustainability of all life forms on the planet”.
