Title not known (al Attar 1)
Tree roots of black, red, and yellow
This vibrant work, by Suad al Attar, is electrified through the hyper-realistic rendering of a tree’s root system fanning out from the central trunk like lightning through the sky. The color scheme of intense reds and yellows contrasted with black adds to the visual vibrancy of the piece.
