How ironic is it that in today’s age of ecological crisis humans cultivate flowering plants, castrate their reproductive bloom, and deliver around the planet to commemorate both vital and banal moments of our lives? We live in an era of increasing complexity with regard to Climate Change and Ecocide unfolding in parallel to our supposed dominance over such things.

My main objectives for this series are to provide a situation where the viewer feels a primary and seductive sensory experience of light, color, or form stemming directly from flower material and then to stimulate consideration of the signifier and its related meanings today. References to Flemish Baroque floral painting, Abstract Expressionism, and the general practice of floral depictions in art history are implicit in various presentations of this work. Discourse around the concept of “beauty” as a taboo meme plays a role here as well.

The use of photography is via multiple exposure photograms, chemically-altered still life photographs, and flower “pressings” onto chemically altered sheets of 8” x 10” inch film. The final prints are made as archival pigment prints in editions of 6 each at the 28” inch high by 22” inch wide size (a larger size is offered in an edition of 3 each).

A central component of this work in exhibition is a three-tiered fountain sculpture made of Plexiglas and installed with a variety of fresh flowers. The fountain is experienced as it wilts and dries over the timeframe of an exhibition. It creates potpourri. Ephemeral aspects of floral life and death are linked to a form of physical recycling via the sculpture and in various new representations of the same materials on the walls.
