“Elegant, perfectly photographed flower arrangements at the point of decay, emblematic of transience.
Uncomfortable in a different way is the show of superb photographs of flower arrangements by Emma Bass at Black Asterisk Gallery. The photographs are bright, clear, precise and exuberant. The uneasy element is that each arrangement contains hints of decay. Like a basket of fruit painted by Caravaggio, the beauty is marred by hints of time and fate. A tulip that bows its head is the strongest image of all.”
