More from my travels, this time it's from last year in Lanzarote. Driving around the island there are numerous volcanoes some long dormant, some extinct and some still active. These can be seen either on tours through the national park or in the distance from other parts of the island. The more recent activities result in a very brown and slightly reddish soil, which lies bare until the plants manage to take root. In Iceland they plant lupins to help the soil, I didn't notice anything similar here, but plants still managed to find a way to colonize the land.
This artwork is called 'Timanfaya' after the volcano national park on Lanzarote. It is mixed-media, collage and currently unframed. Size: H52 x W73 cm £120.
