Perfect Flowers

The Perfect Flowers are a series of luminous paintings by the artist with enriched surfaces that elevate the artist’s writings from the early 2000s. The series explores new content that the artist began working on in his later years, expanding on previously known lines and cadences around the topic of flowers, birth, death and reincarnation. The series was first shown in New York in 2017.
