Abor sole (latin for tree of the sun) reflects the environmental system that relies on a delicate balance between carbon dioxide and oxygen. It evokes a sense of power coupled with fragility. By illustrating the foliage with the roots I hope to illuminate the architectural structure of the tree in its entirety. The foliage describes the condition of the atmospheric environment whereas the roots reveal the narrative of the subterranean environment. My work becomes a meditation on the environment: from the monumentality of landscape to the minutiae.
