This imagery depicts a mixture of cut and artificial flowers in vacuous black backgrounds. The flowers are photographed individually and then digitally composited together. The forms and patterns that these assemblages reference vary from flowing garland décor to genetic structures. One of the prints references the molecular structure of delphinidin, a plant pigment that creates the color blue. This pigment is coveted by horticulturists who have been trying to merge it with roses for almost 170 years. The blue rose is often thought of as the “holy grail” of the flower industry. In my photographs the use of real and artificial flowers echoes human’s desire for control and perfection over nature.
