100 x 70 cm, Acrylic on canvas.
According to Chinese mythology, there are 5 elements which influences one to the others: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water.
Fire is fed by wood; after the fire has burned itself out there remain ashes which become earth, in which metals are found and from which water springs; the water feeds the trees, thus completing the circle back to the element of wood.
These elements are bound to the micro and macrocosmos (The body and the surroundings: color, emotion, season, etc). This painting shows five women which symbolize the five elements, with its respective color, emotion and season.
