This piece is a nod of the head to Latin America's tropical foliage, and Gabriela Gil's relationship to nature. From a technical standpoint the monochromatic color palette and layering of material creates space and optical illusions that challenge realism.
References that come to mind: My monstera plant, "ghost shadows," textures in mediums (satin, matte, etc), green, Tarsila do Amaral, light, Latin America flora
