In Hypermorph Garden 4.0 Chapter 14: Roots of the Round-leaves Mangrove Apple trees penetrated into the river bottom. A group of buccaneer anchovies, a ponyfish and a red snapper wander around the roots in the river.
Hypermorph Garden 4.0 is a series of paintings featuring the flora, fauna and historical speculations of the mangrove forest at Jetty Semeling, Kedah State in Malaysia. The forest has splendid salt-tolerant trees. It provides a buffer zone to protect the land from wind and wave damage. Through this series of paintings, I hope to 1) Introduce the mangroves forest reserve in Sungai Petani. 2) Promote the clean & green nature, the historical sites and attractions nearby the location. 3) Reduce waste disposal to protect the nature and sites.
The series has 15 pieces of mixed media paintings, which the content on each canvas is interconnected to each other, to elaborate a comprehensive scene around the mangrove forest. Each canvas is W122 x H152.5cm. The 15 pieces make the interconnected width to become1,830cm.
Hypermorph Garden 4.0 Chapter 14 (2021) is signed on the front or back and includes my Certificate of Authenticity .
