Flowers fascinate me – it is Spring here and they are blooming everywhere.  There is no simpler representation or resonance of natural beauty and symmetry.  They also remind us of the transience, fragility and value of our own sentience, life and experience; external appearances and a temporary flourish of colour and life are wonderful, glorious things but it is in the abstractions, the complexity and the mysterious depths of this Universe that meaning and value truly reside.  Simple flowers are not just simple flowers – they are discrete images and indirect representations of an embodied eternal logic and order of emergent, patterned complexity and spontaneous creativity in the world.
