___________________________________________________________________________

This symbolic still life brings forth a sense of the universal, a sense of nature and a way to delve into humanity’s sense of belonging and connection.

Note on my choice of blooms: During the Renaissance in Northern Europe artists specialized in still-life painting where depictions featured floral arrangements that, typically combined flowers from different countries and even different continents in one vase and at one moment of blooming.
