For Geraldine Javier, emotional suspense and intellectual provocation are crucial elements that characterize her works. By The Tree's Strange Roots was Geraldine's winning piece for the inaugural Ateneo Art Awards in 2004. Monochromatic and painted in varying intensities of black and the artist's signature mysterious blue-green hue - a shade that is reminiscent of the atmosphere of twilight - it depicts anonymous sprawled limbs in the woods. The figure's checkered skirt echo the criss-crossing branches.  Like listening to an aria that's paused just before the soprano reaches the crescendo or watching a scene in a thriller in which a climatic event is about to happen, her paintings are pregnant with anticipation, evoking a subliminally tumultuous sensation and posing profound questions about the nature of pain, suffering, life and death.
