“Ghost Flowers” (2019)
“Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.”
- Don Miguel Ruiz
The series “Ghost Flowers” is born out of a desire to simply create. Where I’m trying to learn to create for nobody else except myself and to leave expectations behind me. “Ghost Flowers” as a name came when shooting the first flowers and I knew it was the perfect name: flowers have their entire own language and boucquets could tell an entire story based on the colors and the type of flower you would present. And then, there are ghosts - or at least the word and connection to the paranormal, the unseen, the symbolism of death and what lies beyond. I guess this is kind of my story: how I use my past to create a present, untouchable yet lingering present story of what it is to have lost one their passion and to rekindle it by creating only for the artist her simple desire to create.
