Done in Lee Long Looi’s usual style of elongating the features of women, he depicts a vibrant-hued background. Lee Long Looi creatively brings a mundane scene in life such as harvesting to a whole new level by using hues of white, making it a visual treat altogether. All the colours, shapes and use of space work harmoniously together, unified and pleasing to the eye. The artwork is the epitome of simplicity at its best.
