About The Artwork

I took a picture while climbing up to the temple Kek Lok Si in Penang, Malaysia. I was inspired by lush tropical flowers at one of the upper terraces and bright light. The single hibiscus flower is telling a story surrounded by temple statues. It is a photograph, but I also hand painted over it a little bit with acrylic paint in an almost unperceivable way, but it makes the artwork more complex, powerful, original and unique. 120 x 160 cm, digitally altered photograph on textured pvc, hand painted over with acrylic paint, edition of 12, 2017 The photograph is also published in the book: TJASA IRIS, 8 WINTERS IN SOUTH EAST ASIA, A EUROPEAN UNDER THE TROPICS, PHOTOGRAPHS 2009 - 2017, available at Amazon. The photograph is sold unframed, but can be framed at additional cost.
