I was thinking of contrast and juxtapozition. I had a photograph of a flower I took in the Panamanian village of Samboo in the Darian Jungle. I experimented with various blend modes and incorporated things like skulls and gargoyle statues. The theme was constrasting the attributes of the flower: life, soft, gentle, pretty with opposing themes such as: death, hard, painful and grotesque. I hit a point where I didn’t know what else to do with it, so here it is.
