Among berries and leaves

Among berries and leaves

“My mother-in-law has an allotment. I have studied her plants and eaten many berries there. I guess that some of my inspiration came from there. I moved to Stockholm from Madrid a number of years ago. Nature is so much more tangible here in Stockholm, or maybe it is just the changing seasons that make it seem so. Everything dies during the winter and then spring arrives and the buds on the trees explode. I have always been interested in plants. I like their different colors, shapes and texture.

From a purely technical perspective, I used a compilation of my own photographs of plants. From an artistic perspective, it is a combination of collage and assembly where I brought together different objects.”
