I submitted 3 pieces to APERO Gallery's upcoming exhibit, "Human Beings".
"Human Beings" by definition means "a man, woman, or child of the species Homo sapiens, distinguished from other animals by superior mental development, power of articulate speech, and upright stance." Well, OK.
You know, it's difficult to express in images mental development, or speech ability. So I chose men and women standing. I also chose flowers to express the soul, or essence of human beings. Flowers are the seed of the plant, the reproductive part. Flowers in bloom demonstrate the optimum stage of development...the human being's finest part if you will.
