“The 'Roots' series followed. It says there is a lot more than what is just seen on the surfaces of immigrant lives. Immigration remains one of the hardest things people do…Black and white dramas, trees hidden by black light and shade are now a part of Dhaliwal’s vision. He has used thinner, finer lines for trees and leaves and the background remains hidden. He brings this work to a new generation, especially to young immigrants born elsewhere, where only their skin color is a reminder of where they came from. People who do not know their roots or where they lie can never know them except as pictures, as fairy tales, as words in languages they sometimes understand and can rarely read.”
