Dried flowers on canvas
180 cm x 135 cm
2017

Dried flowers collected from nature form a portrait of my mother. Petals and whole intact flowers build a picture of her as a child. The flowers are desperately trying to preserve a moment in time, freezing the memory of them being alive. Are still all memories valuable enough to be preserved and can a died flower represent something living?
