Mighty Maliau Falls 3-The Lower Tier, Oil On Canvas, 175cm x 127cm, July 2012.
Waterfalls is a beautiful and rare natural phenomenon that allow two opposites of the natural world -gushing water and solid rocks to meet. It is also a necessary phenomenon because it signifies the existence and distribution of the source of all life -water. The result of this natural encounter is a dance of pure energetic physical presence, noise and sight that if carefully executed, vibrates in a painting. Both these ancient natural elements jointly existed since the creation of the world by God and both claim the right to exist in the natural world. For me to be present and as a witness of such wonder is an experience to be savored and must be painted.
