Ode to the Art of Uprooting

Ode to the Art of Uprooting is an ongoing series focused on city trees. During the pandemic, the only thing to do was wandering around the streets of Berlin at night. I started to look at city trees, and think they must have a sad life, enclosed into 2 sqm squares of concrete. I bet they plot at night to one day, organize themselves and take off, going to a more natural land where they can breathe and be among other trees. After 8 years in Berlin, I recently moved back to Madrid, my hometown. This series of paintings is made between cities, between periods of my life that are constantly changing. These paintings are a tribute to movement, to taking your feet out of the ground and move on. Life is movement.
