Purple Haze, But Better Together

Teresa Murta
05 July, 2023 – 04 August, 2023
Tabula Rasa Gallery is pleased to announce the UK debut solo show of artist Teresa Murta at our London space. Teresa Murta (b.1993, Lisbon) is an artist based in Berlin. Through her paintings, Teresa delves into the realms of wonder, absurdity, and metamorphosis. With a unique intuition, she weaves together elements from both the artificial and natural worlds, offering viewers a gateway into alternate realities that beckon to be explored.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a text “Purple Haze” by James Ambrose, independent writer, curator and head of production émergent magazine.

In a sonic landscape filled with diverse sounds and influences, Hendrix’s Purple Haze transcends boundaries and offers a one-of-a-kind auditory experience. The song’s mesmerising melodies, coupled with Hendrix’s innovative guitar techniques, evoke a sense of euphoria and disorientation all at once. These sensory perceptions are mirrored when first encountering Murta’s paintings. imbued with a rich and poetic palette, they energise the canvas. Bold hues and contrasting tones create a sense of dynamism, drawing the viewer’s attention, evoking strong emotional responses.
