An endless path into the unknown, Lao paints a picture of precarious ambiguity, capturing a temporal movement into the new and uncertain. There is both impendence and calm; a static impasto creating an uncontrolled dynamism that is strong yet unimposing. Lao conveys moving forward into the night as a journey into an unknown realm shadowed by darkness, filled with possibilities and opportunities alike.
