Seah Kim Joo’s works revolve around nature and people, apart from occasional abstract pieces. Perhaps it was the cultural background of his hometown in Terengganu that influenced his choice of subject matters. A palm oil tree steals the show with this work, along with villagers clad in traditional garments including sarong, about their antics on a working day.
