Humble vegetation, subdued and controlled, urban. Plants that we do not pay attention to, a reminder of an increasingly weak and remote link with nature. Leaves and branches relocated in an even more humanized context, surrounded by fabrics and plastics and openly observed by the eye of a lens. Thanks to the painting they become protagonists, acquiring a sudden dignity. This new role allows them to talk about the arrogance and lack of understanding that on many occasions dominates human actions in their relationship with nature and with their own origins. The real protagonist of my works is the human being, although it is not as worthy of appearing in them as a simple twig. In this case, I felt identified with this plant, mostly for the location, lonely in its own complexity. That's why I titled it "Self portrait"
