Part of the series ‘Natural Wonders’, this work was created one year after returning from Uganda, where I lived for a year. I vividly recall a strong longing for the adventure and breathtaking nature of Africa before starting on this work. This painting was a way for me to express my deep desire and craving the natural wonders of Africa. The intuitive splashes and surges of paint give the work a strong sense of movement, and the color choice is to a large extent derived from colors of the African savanna. To me this work celebrates the raw beauty and dynamic rhythm of life in Africa.
