I am fascinated by the strong roots and the monumental appearance of old trees. However, I was particularly inspired by the shapes of the Ficus Macrophylla. Several trees of this type are located in a small park in the heart of the city of Valencia (Spain). There I lingered in the shade of the trees and created a series of ink drawings.

Intertwined shapes. Light and shadow. Black and white.The strong root of a graceful tree seeks its way into the earth. A network of fine lines is meant to depict the vitality of the tree. In my eyes, roots can be a symbol for vitality, stability and origin of life.

The drawing is part of the series: Tree of life. Ficus Macrophylla
