oil on canvas, 180x120 cm.
Fargesia is a family of bamboos, found in alpine conifer forests of East Asia. They are known in Chinese as "jian zhu" meaning "arrow bamboo".
The bamboo in this painting: 'Fargesia victualia' is only found on Tanega Island, South of Japan and is grown as a source for food and fuel.
This is another one of my larger works. I painted about 700 shoots to create this field.
