    Miwako Iwamoto

At the end of it’s life, a flower takes many appearances. Falling, deflating, dancing, spilling …The lighted flowers, embossed in shadow.Sometimes, as they approach the boundary of life and death, flowers have a grotesque beauty.Such beauty, only witnessed at the end of the flower’s life, is due to the nobility that exists as, courageously holding onto life, its form collapses closer to death, when, in a final expression of dignity, it succumbs to the ultimate dying moment.
