The fourth piece in the Isolation series, looks at our senior population.
The most vulnerable during the pandemic. They had to bear this alone without loved ones at hand and a staggering number have fallen prey to this virus.
The depth of unsanitary conditions in our long-term care facilities has added to the death toll of our senior population.
Cut flowers signifies that whilst the term of life for our elders is finite, they still need a full vase of water, they still need the sunshine and care that a potted plant would. They can remain and fresh and bloom with love till they wither and it’s our duty to make sure they are taken care of.
Here I show the fragility of an elder embedded in florals. My palette here has some earth tones to signify the ‘ashes to ashes, dust to dust’ of a life lived till the end.
