Shattered Red Tulips

Barbara Brown
From the Desire For Arcadia series
Archival pigment print on cotton rag
40 x 32 in. / 102 x 82 cm
Edition of one and Artist Proof

"This body of work offers a view of an inhabited place inspired by the forest, the meadow and the garden; a place not unfamiliar but just beyond the reach of a city-dwellers fingertips. Destined for the compost pile, all the plants depicted here have been cut, plucked and severed. This is an image of temporal life, caught by the camera, yet on a trajectory of decline. The photograph captures moments on this timeline, and gives us a landing place in a constantly moving and changing world.

"This series of photographs can be seen as a memento mori, reminding us of our ultimate destiny. Contemplate if you will, the fragile, time-limited nature of life, found in the detritus of my garden."

- B. Brown
