The project is titled as History of La Gomera, a small Island in Canary Islands, Spain that me, my family, my parents and our ancestors before them lived, worked and died there. With the visual language of art and a fusion of magic, history and my emotional bond to my birth and living place, in this series of paintings, created between 2017 to 2019, all oil on canvas, I present an expression of life in La Gomera.
