For a staunch Social Realist artist such as Emmanuel Garibay, venturing into other genres such as the still life could provide the necessary artistic distance as preparation fortackling urgent themes. In this triptych that features the knife-like blooms of the birds-of-paradise, Garibay devoted the full extent of his abilities to evoke the wildness and the beauty of these flowers.

Through eloquent coloration and juxtaposition of organic svelte shapes, this work proves that this is no finger exercise but a full-bodied work that enables the viewer to access Garibay’s multi-layered talent. This is a depiction of the flora that is wild, ecstatic, and unapologetic in its prodigious growth and blossoming.
