Life Of Flowers




...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.
