artist's statement

"The flower beings. Fluttering, leaning and twisting in motion with a myriad of feelings, they are partaking in the "Dance of Life". In darkness, there is light; sorrow, joy, death and life. In nothingness, there is everything. Beauty can be found in every stage: as that of a bud, full bloom or even withering flower.

The flower's life is a metaphor that reflects on the fleetingness of human life. Our existence is one of impermanence and as beings in a universe is so fragile. Like a delicate blossom, we live to our fullest, knowing all along gradually we fade away."

All images are platinum palladium in editions of thirty prints; single images are 8 x 10 matted to 16 x 20. Triptychs (#52) are 10 x 22, matted to 18 x 30.
