In relation to previous pieces, the palette applied implies an increased variety of tones and chromatic complexity, and it is used to represent elements from nature like plants, branches, leaves or tree barks. Such figurative detail could relate to a renewed approach to the landscape tradition, even when the basic components of the gender, horizon and perspective, are not included.

This is how the artist deepens her inquiries on the representation of nature, establishing a possible connection with some autochthonous vegetable typology, to be found in the color palette selected -including browns, greens, and shades of orange and terracotta-, and also in some figurative elements like thorns. Such features are suggestive of the shapes and overall aspect of the particular Acacia caven trees that make up the extremely thick, cloistered and dismal native forest of Uruguay’s countryside.
