Valentine’s Day was around the corner, atmosphere was filled with hearts and flowers. When I was at the grocery I realized that I never took a good look at the stem of a rose. Actually, it is rare that you might see the original look of them at stores. Flower shops get rid of the thorns and wrap those stems with tissue paper or plastic sheets. After receiving roses, people would put them into a vase, the vessel which was designed to hold flowers. We are looking at vase way more than stem for sure. And we say that we love rose, just like loving the person who we are sending them to, and we say that we love every part of that person. This piece of my work unveils the ‘not as pretty part’ of a rose, showing the natural form once the rose dies. Do you still love me now?
