Artist's description:

The Sundaland forest spreads across the western half of the Indo-Malayan archipelago of 17,000 equatorial islands. This tropical forests’ fauna includes an orangutan unique to the region, as well as two Southeast Asian rhino species. Industrial forestry and the international trade in animals for food and medicine disturb the balance of the flora and fauna here. Commercial rubber, Palm oil, and pulp production, along with illegal and unsustainable logging has left only about seven percent of the original forest intact. In this painting I want to describe the beauty and age of this forest, but also that it is under threat. Using lighter geometric shapes references human control over our environment, but also helps create a sense of hope, that there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
