“The Earth counts time in billions of years. It took more than 4 billion years for it to make trees. In the chain of species, trees are a pinnacle, a perfect living sculpture. Trees defy gravity; they are the only natural element in a perpetual movement toward the sky. They grow unhurriedly toward the Sun that nourishes their foliage. Families of ‘trees’ form, united by customs and rituals that are handed down through the generations. Some adapt to the nature of their pasture and their pasture adapts to them. And both gain. They have inherited from these minuscule cyanobacteria the power to capture light’s energy. They store it and feed off it, turning it into wood and leaves which then decompose into a mixture of water, mineral, vegetable and living matter.” Forests are the lungs of the Earth, without them we, humans would die! In order for us to live and prosper, we need to protect the forests. - Home (2009), the documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand This painting was or is exhibited at: - The Brick Lane Gallery in London, UK (October 2016) - Luxury Villa in Costa Brava (Spain) - an exhibition with the title "The fairy tale in Aiguablava" (Aug - Sept 2018)

About Tui Sada

I am a diplomat by profession and a painter by passion.
I am young and enthusiastic about painting.

I enjoy the process of creating a painting because it allows me to be fully immersed in the present moment. I love the night, landscapes and seascapes, stars and universe, Milky Way and nebulas. I like the darkness from which the light emerges and balances the atmosphere. I like that my paintings evoke certain emotions that bring the viewer back to here and now; being firmly rooted in the present moment from which observation of the past or the future becomes a joyful experience.
