Artist's Description

“Tenerife Beyond” – beyond the coastal tourist traps on the Canary Island of Tenerife.

I discovered this old car on a trip away from the beach, taking the local bus up into the surrounding countryside and towns. Abandoned on a spare plot of land with nature slowly reclaiming it. I also liked the contrasts between the old rusting car, the rough, unfinished walls, the building rubble and the green and yellow flowers growing up around.

There is quite a good bus network on Tenerife, but if you ever take the bus at the weekend beware: The timetable on all the bus-stops does not apply! I waited in vain for hours before I got back to where I started. All the locals knew this and when it came the bus was actually extremely punctual.

Location: Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.
