I love flowers and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I love their growing and their blooming, and especially their colours. I consider it part of my mission as a contemporary artist to encourage attention to flowers.
And as a contemporary artist problematising the beauty of flowers is also part of the remit (see the collection Undoing the Arrangement).

This experience became a painting.
