Nazi Ejaz is a young female artist from Pakistan. She trained at the Slade School of Art, London and this piece is an example of the work she completed while there.

This series of trees has been etched onto paper that has a layer of tissue over it. It represents nature and fragility, two of the themes that she likes to explore.

Physical description

This etching, in ink on paper, consists of four identical images placed in a row, with each image measuring 21.5 x 15.1 (L x W). The image is of a landscape depicted with a minimal use of lines. There is a tree on the right hand side and a small bush on the left hand side. Only the trunk of the tree is visible and the bush is reduced to bare branches. The entire scene is in shades of blue.
