When one hears ‘Water’, immediately our minds go to all the things that are sensory and visual. We think of the colour blue and we associate the feeling ‘wet’. Around us, Water is ocean, lake, rain, and dew. In feelings, we may associate coolness, wetness, thirst, and by association dryness. In ManButur’s Water series, I find it most interesting that those associations are the least pronounced.

We are inadvertently guided to experience Water, in a different way. Here, Water is present, but as a quiet supporting role. A presence that does not scream out. Yet, its presence transports us to a place quite different. Here, Water have merged together the earth and the sky.
