A study in earth tones, this painting symbolises the struggle between the natural and unnatural. The colour of clay penetrates the image, with symbols of fighter jets, gun muzzles and tools of destruction punctuating the canvas. The artist shows the confusion of war, juxtaposing nature and creativity with manmade destruction and futility.
