Coming from Majorca, the proximity of nature extremely influences my work. My practice is about - and inspired by - the sublime, which I see as the overwhelming quality of nature and our relation to it. Living at this time of climate emergency, I sense the urgency to create art consistent with my concerns for the future of the planet. Consequently I aim to reuse materials in my art practice in order to minimize my carbon footprint.
