The Sarawakian born artist admiration for nature and its intricacies is emphasised in this body of work. A flurry of beige spots surrounds the landscape with the large tree standing firm in the centre. Viewers won’t be able to help but be entranced with the lines that make up the bark of the tree yet here it seems like the veins of the human body. It may be the artist’s intention to corelate the two to show that life in all its forms deserves a preciation especially with its shared similarities.
