This artwork is inspired by the fact that each land mass, and thus each landscape, lies on tectonic plates that drifts upon the magmic layer of the earth. In this artwork, however, the grasslands are drifting on the underground water that feeds and sustains it, giving richness to the soil and plant life – symbolized by the grasses and the rich autumn colours.

Shapes and textures merge
in the autumn of the city
while colour and taste
explode into tones
of red orange yellow brown
in the season of the landscape
