The triptych depicts three different fallen leaves that have been conjoined together to form a whole. Through Silent Life, Ms Ong emphasises that the beauty of nature not only resides in the living but can also be found in the dead. The photorealistic style of the artwork opens the eyes to the delicate work of Mother Nature, while the monochromatic scheme of the artwork underlines the natural cycles that exist as a backdrop to the urban hustle and bustle.
