Artist's description:

This piece is my most surreal work and was made in Taipei City in 2006 using Oil Pastels and Oil Paint on Canvas. I decided to mix the two mediums as I wanted to use the texture and immediacy of the Oil Pastels to represent the rough bark of the tree and contrast with the smoother application of Oil Paint. It is inspired by the incredible Chinese Banyan Trees that can be found in Taiwan. I love the unpredictable shapes and directions made by the roots as they search for vital water sources to survive. Theses trees have always fascinated me and after drawing them many times my mind began to wonder about how an alien land or Another World populated by these trees might look. I imagined what a world would look like if these unstoppable trees could bridge the gap between the ground and a mirror image ground (or very close planet) above our heads. I pictured a desolate place with a small sky sandwiched between the dry lands which are held near by the all conquering roots of the Banyan Tree.
