Flower Shop

The Flower Shop series includes seven collages made from archival inkjet prints and gouache on paper. This work presents a hyper-real environment built around cut flowers. Photographs of flowers and lighting and cooling systems speak towards human efforts to preserve captive beauty; an act not dissimilar to efforts to keep temporal love alive. The painted brushstroke provides a kind of ephemeral container for both the beauty and it’s hyper-real environment.
