Exquisite Blight

For centuries, writers and artists have used flowers as metaphors for youth and classic beauty. To my eye, ‘blighted’ flowers reveal a unique and exquisite beauty. As the flowers die, they reveal an unexpected yet profound allure and grace. It occurred to me that flowers could effectively challenge traditional notions of beauty in a powerful way and with these thoughts, I created a series of images based on native and non-native flowers.  This body of work spanned 6 years and was featured in numerous exhibitions.
