In "The Amethyst Pair", we see that Taku plays with interdependence and trust evident in the composition. He states, "Despite the reverend outlook of the imposing black bodies captured in this piece, we see that they are interconnected and meaningfully poised. This was to celebrate the age-old saying of 'Ubuntu' meaning 'I am because we are', and to remind us of the unity and strength. The amethyst purple silk screen approach paired with the intricate use of newspaper is a part of my visual language which enhances the story."
