This installation points out to the fact that all living beings, from plants to humans evolved from the ancient common ancestor: the first living cell.

The different colors from these paintings come as well from a single source: red cabbage pigments. Through the use of different plants; avocado, lemon and red cabbage the installation presents an image where we all emerge from a single primal ground. We share a common heritage, not only of chemistry but of consciousness, of the need to survive in a cosmos whose matter we share but which is itself indifferent to our living and self-concern.
