Medium: ball point pens and markers on acetate
The diptych presents several relationships: the position of the diamond flower corresponds to that of the diamond snowflakes. Both images have organic shapes taken from nature, one from spring, the other from winter. The flower has a rough texture and is over a smooth background, while the snowflake has a smooth texture while being over a rough background.
Flowers and snowflakes both pertain to seasons; both temporary, and occurring in one phase after another. A snowflake or a flower is barely seen at once outdoors, but here they are made of diamonds, hence they are permanent, and existing at the same time: two parallel moments.
