Taking as a starting point prehistoric symbolic manifestations, he delves with psychic empathy into the cultures of our ancestors. In his fluid reflection, the work takes us on a spiritual journey through his connection with the rich fossil deposits in the mountains of the Atapuerca, Spain to his arrival and experience of the sacred, Uluru.
Martin de Burgos’ devotion to spirituality enables him to link the two ancestral cultures through his own intuition and expression. Within this exhibition, Oscar Martin de Burgos allows us to connect with and pay our respect to our ancestors through the passage of Animism and spirituality.
