ABOUT THE ARTWORK
“Flower Crowns” explores the oneness of all things and humankind’s peculiar penchant for forgetting that. The beings in the painting are contemplating this wider perspective from a vantage point amongst the cut flowers – flowers cut by human hands and passed through many others before making their way to a store, from which they were purchased in exchange for money, and then brought home and clipped and given water and nutrients in a vase, all for visual and olfactory fulfillment. Isn’t it funny? We are but a blip existing in the most extraordinary of circumstances.
