...in this transient phenomenal world with its constant change, what appears to exist in fact does not.

A Cup of Sake Beneath the Cherry Trees, Kenko

Life of flowers is a project inspired by the idea of impermanence and illusion of reality in 
Zen philosophy. Using flowers as an ephemeral subject, I painted them with ‘unreal colours’ to give a feeling of abstraction. In these photographs the flowers are captured out of the flow of time, conveying in this way the illusion of a constant present moment and expanded memory of it.
