2004 Ash and Roses

In 2004, I had an exhibition entitled Ash and Roses, which featured approximately 15 drawings and one multimedia work. The three-dimensional piece was a black box that contained ashes and burnt roses in various stages of disintegration. Some of the roses were still intact, and one could even recognize the colors of the flowers. But some were decayed beyond recognition. All that was left of them was black ash. The materiality of burnt roses brought up very strong emotions in some viewers.
