To the Sky

To the Sky

Arantzazu Martinez, Spain

Oil on canvas, 162 x 114 cm


‘To the Sky’ represents awakening, the voluntary abandonment of our comfort zone to explore the essence of being free. 
The scene’s composition shows us a delicate balance in which stability seems fragile without guarantees. It is vertigo mixed with the excitement we all feel going out into the unknown. 
Symbolically, we see the world represented by the snail. A three-dimensional snail from which the whole scene starts. The colors are vivid and highly vibrant. Because of this, Arantzazu Martinez invites us to experience life playfully, leaving fear and resistance behind.
