About the artwork
The warm earth tone colour palette of this abstract work creates a rustic and serene atmosphere, communicating nuanced emotion and placing viewers in a serene state of mind. Bold and strong diagonal lines convey a sense of gentle movement akin to the falling of leaves from trees during fall, reflecting the mastery of the artist’s vision and technique. Similar to man’s solitary journey to find his own place in the universe, their singularity and minuteness brings into awareness the vastness of the space that enshrouds them, encouraging introspection within the viewer.
