‘Nieve y Color’ means ‘Snow and Colour’. In December 2013, when I still studied Fine Arts in Granada (Spain), the city’s Gran Vía was decorated with beautiful yellow Gingko trees. I was immediately captivated by their shiny leaves and they inspired me to do this work.
It a representation of the colourful Southern winters, where trees and flowers can bloom throughout December and January and, on a more personal level, it shows my deep love for colours.
It was the first time that I created a work in public (Sierra Nevada) and even though I was intimitaded by some viewers first, it was an experience I enjoyed a lot, mostly because of the beautiful photographic outcome. I was also one of the first works I created with natural material and the starting point for a series of natural works that followed in 2014.
I used colour pigments and dry leaves to create the work and a compact camera for the pictures. The beautiful sunlinght and the strong pigment colours on the plain white snow had it, that I didn’t need to edit the pictures.
