Still lives and Obelisks
Still lives, made in polychromatic thermoplastic, are a set of strange fruits and sweets. They came after the photographic works I did at the Botanical Gardens on Gran Canaria. I also completed this series with still lives painted on aluminium, depicting fantastical objects inspired by the collections at Prado Museum (Flint, Menéndez, Van der Hammen…etc).
The Obelisks was a series of 10 menhirs, with invented textures, but with plant-like appearance. They are made in thermoplastic at heights of 2.40-3.70 meters. These pieces were accompanied by 10 paintings done on aluminium panels also with plant- or animal-like textures. This double series was the answer to an official invitation to participate in the Spanish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale under the subject of Art and Nature. However, in the end, these Obelisks were just exhibited at Fundación Juan March in Madrid.
