This piece resonates vibrancy, liveliness and vivacity. It is done in her usual loud-on-loud and contrasting colours, featuring daring streaks, blocks and lines to handsomely frame the bold-coloured fragments and shapes. It is a discourse between nature and man, and it can be likened to seeking solitude in nature, the greens, blues and warm washes of red each representing different types of the elements of flora and fauna. Not one to shy away from colours, the artist’s works are often described as lyrically symbolic featuring a myriad of colours.
