Black and white landscape composed of a series of motifs of plants taken from a variety of existing sources.

The large detailed and complex flower head in the foreground contrasts with the three cartoon-like trees in the background. The lack of perspective and relational proportions within the fabricated landscape, devoid of human presence, is characteristic of the artist's work. 'Bast' is the botanist's terminology for 'phloem', the tissue that conducts synthesised food substances in a plant.
