Please Find the Tree Heart

Ink on rice paper

Set of 10

On my way back home, I was shocked when I saw the palm tree that I pass by every day. It was enucleated more than halfway through as if its "heart" was taken out. This driven me to raise the community's awareness of this heinous vandalism via this work. I put myself in its shoe, trying to retrieve the lost heart, in hope of spreading the message and gaining empathy.
