Global Roots

Artist Statement: “This series portrays a surreal arrangement consisting of a variety of flowers all originating from the same root system. The floral installation represents our global human population — the human species originated from one root race, and evolved into multiple races with diverse characteristics and appearances. The root ‘vase’ is symbolic of a sense of belonging, origins, and our ever-evolving relationship with each other. On a semiotic level, roots symbolize strength, vitality, and beginnings; roots are the organs of plants that typically lie beneath the surface and act as a vital source of nutrition and nourishment. Not usually depicted in art, root systems are commonly overshadowed by the beauty and allure of flowers. This image showcases the root as a subject of great beauty and importance, subverting the familiar bouquet model with a twist.”
