Piet Warffemius uses plain shapes that originate in nature. But that does not necessarily make for a plain painting.
The apparent simplicity of this painting opens up new ways of seeing. Although Warffemius uses acrylic paint here, the buds on the branches remind us of watercolours, while the orange plant is made up of opaque layers. The horizontal stripes in the background could be interpreted as a brick wall or as branches.
