Mi casa, mi árbol 9
I have always been drawn to those rural cottages accompanied by a tree that one frequently finds dotting the countryside of La Mancha, viewed from the distant perspective of the road.
This project features a series of photographs that explore the relationship between the house and the tree, and the space around them. Rational constructive elements versus chaotic, undisciplined vegetation. Humanity and nature, its integration into an unconsciously modified landscape, giving rise to exquisitely picturesque scenes of stunning, full-bodied beauty with forgotten stories tucked safely away in their innermost crevices. Territories of the rural world that turn their own transformation into mirrors in which we can observe ourselves, like scattered ruins, invisible to the unsuspecting traveller.
For the production of this work, high quality cotton papers have been aged with natural dyes and oxides, which once dried, have been copied with pigment inks with giclee technic, this makes each of the photographs a unique piece.
