This arresting piece, entitled ‘Moon Sheath, 2012’ is a discourse between Raphael and nature. Embodying a magical and ethereal quality to the painting, this is an abstract perspective of nature, decorated through soft and large movements of the brush, followed by an emphasis of the moon, painted almost as if one is moongazing. The piece is impactful, stirring emotions throughout anyone who studies it – loud, big yet calming at the same time. The creative and artistic canvas painted with oil displays Ahbeng’s visual rendition of nature that never fails to attract.
