Art Description

Painting: Oil on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric).

‘Flames’ is composed with multiple Cassia tora root tips that are turned upside-down. The picture plane is totalized by root tips of red, yellow and brown hues. The kaleidoscope of Cassia tora root tips gives the impression of flames. At the right side of the painting, there is a root tip depicted in tones of yellow ocher, with a pair of branches that spread across other root tips. The root tips phantasmagoria, buoyed by warm colors, re-enacts the allegory of reincarnation, expressing the notion that the end of a generation marks the beginning of yet another generation – a world without end. The composition is a metaphor for regeneration and hope.
