This particular work, entitled ‘Sugar Cane Workers’ was painted almost like a celebration to life. Multicoloured swishes form the background of the painting while in the foreground, silhouettes of the sugar cane workers are painted in white and captured in motion, which comes off almost like their dancing. It’s an uplifting and energetic work.
