Artist's Description

Tribute to Sylvia Plath. Walking through our Cemetary, these hit me with a slap!

“The tulips are too red in the first place, they hurt me.
Even through the gift paper I could hear them breathe
Lightly, through their white swaddlings, like an awful baby.
Their redness talks to my wound, it corresponds.
They are subtle: they seem to float, though they weigh me down,
Upsetting me with their sudden tongues and their colour,
A dozen red lead sinkers round my neck.”

From Tulips by Sylvia Plath
