"Bloomlands series came to me out of the need to capture the delicacy and impermanent experiences. Like a touch of an insect on my skin.
Here, the flower, the petal, a see-through x-rayed surface, or a veil between what's alive and what's not, becomes a pure essence of life, fleeting from certainty and foreverness.
Some of my blooms are losing their fullness, gaining the rips and tears, yet still thirsting water. Some are as smooth as velvet, showing the beginning of transition that life really is. Either mature or young, all are fragile. And when we’re fragile, we pay attention to blood, heart and spirit even more.
This is what I’m after in my Bloomlands series — to capture the twinkle of a momentary beauty and the breathe of life. Like blooms, we're so alive and yet so fading all at the same time."
