Symbiosis in nature is such an arcane interaction. Like
the bees and birds, they dwell upon each other
intimately, in order to survive. The relationship
between the trees and humans are similar - Both
dialogize with each other, surmounting a harmonious
bond within the environment.

Through the luxuriant artworks portrayed in the trees,
Maran An reminisces the communications between the
nature and a man. The symbolism expressed in the
artwork can be explained as the communication
existing among the men and trees, which lingers a
unique relationship that whispers throughout. The
intricate details contained in the artwork, truly
demonstrates the perfect unity between two lives.
Using the mixture of stone powder and paints, An
roughens the edges of the materials by visualizing the
picture in a larger view; finalizing a masterpiece that
links the symbiotic relationships.

The true motive of An’s artworks is to provide “the
fresh and brisk air of forest where people could lighten
their heavy burdens and take breaks without any
doubt.” Instead of seeing the world in a bland view, she
inputs vibrant colors and peaceful nature in order to
portray her view of Arcadia- A place of peace and
harmony. The artworks of Maran An truly offers a
momentary rest and let people breathe in fresh air.
