The material for the wood sculptures was taken from nature in a respectful manner. The post-natural-disaster wood comes from trees that felt down when the Amacuzac River flooded in September 2013.
The Amacuzac River flows through the state of Morelos, Mexico. This is where I grew limes until the river flooded and took the orchard with it. Loosing the orchard was painful. Nothing remained of years of work. But the flood also brought big pieces of drift wood and tree trunks. I then decided to use the drift wood in my art work, to turn the pain and loss of the orchard into something new, to construct happiness on what the river had left us.
