Harmony by Delo.
Physically, trees are a vital element in maintaining environmental harmony both artistically and functionally. Artistically, trees are the dominant element in displaying the beauty of nature. Functionally, trees are associated with soil fertility and its practical benefits for human life. The function of such a tree is visualized in the works entitled “Harmony”.
In the work entitled “Harmony”, trees are shown as subject matter with other supporting objects in the form of farmer plowing activities, views of rice fields, rivers, and so on. The work intends to describe the harmony of human life with nature (trees).
This work is part of ‘Inauguration of Trees‘ Exhibition February 2022 Sawidji Gallery
