Art Description

Painting: Correction Fluid, phosphorescent paint on Paper.

Long ago and far away when I was living in Prague, a favorite pastime on cold and dark winters days was to visit antique stores. Once while looking through a library of ancient books I came upon one with pressed plants among its pages. There amongst the pages, dark brown leaves, stems and flowers, older than I, were pressed between crumbling pages. I imagined they had been picked on some bright and summery day by a long gone memory of a man who had placed them in this very book. All at once, I was struck by the absolute futility and rarefied beauty of this preservation. They were a kind of captured sunlight in the silhouette of leaf, flower or stem reminding of the impermanent circumstance of everything. This memory fell deep into my subconscious but recently floated to the surface when leafing through an old encyclopedia I noted how the browning pages looked like pressed flowers.
