This time around Ismail Latiff takes us deep into the furthest depths of the green forest. All of us feel akin to hikers, watching the thick, thick forest and shrubbery. The arbitrary streaks and spatter of colours dominating the left and right of the canvas provide the illusion of the breeze and leaves as if performing for the viewer in a mystical wind dance. His circle of balance, one that is present in every single painting, acts as the moon in this piece, providing that illumination and that wonder of nature in all its glory.
