A Certain Order: In the Springtime, I collected plants and flowers from the near neighbourhood, I found there a mix of wild and cultivated flora. Inspired by the various colours and shapes I created an object-collague on a flat, trasparent surface. The array of the objects balances between "as fallen naturally" and a certain order set by a sorting mind. This is a contemporary attempt of the traditonal idea of a Still Life: to show and to defeat evanescence at the same time, and to find beauty in it.
