Created in 2015

The main body of this work is a trunk of a burnt Cork Tree. It is burnt inside but the cork resisted the fire. Thinking about this fact inspired this piece. With the desire we all have to change, to be better, to be reborn. However, to be able to do this we have to let go of all the old ballast, let go of all our old habits, of how we treat ourselves and with whatever it is that stops us from being who we really are. Like this trunk, we have to let ourselves die inside first. It’s awesome!
Rebirth screams at us,” Let go of the part of you that isn’t really you go and be reborn!”.
