"Harvest is an attempt to demonstrate the combined relation between earth and the human male form. It conjures the tactile elements that make a man human; its moving hair-like flowers and its limb-like vines invite the viewer to blur the line between ‘body’ and ‘nature’, accepting how each entity can both symbiotically morph and evolve.
With this somewhat metaphoric analogy of merged beings, the artist toys with the bouquet silhouette of the piece and breaks the fantasy with his macabre details of testicles, hair and textured skins, all of which are brought to life by the ink's diverse reactions with water, the breaking of the pigment and naturally placed shadows add a visceral layer to the overall aesthetic of the painting."
