This is one of the new paintings that you can see this weekend at my exhibition in Amsterdam. Expo days in March. I wanted to create something close to “earth”, close to where I live. With colors inspired by sand, the meadows, inspired by the ground which I brought from Spain, I collect earth, and the work of Tàpies. The magical talismans of Tàpies.
I worked on canvas (115 to 160 cm) with pasta, sand, ink, acrylic and oil crayon.
There is always a piece of land that you love, where your feet are stuck to the ground, where you can plant your roots like a tree.
That’s your house, perhaps your homeland.
It is a place to walk and fly.
An own space. Where the moon shines and where is the sun. Where a red circle beats like a heart, in heaven and in your chest.
Casas, an own space, which gives us identity.
