An installation of painted-over flowers is a spatially reconstructed version of the painting Vase with flowers from 1670 by Jan Davidsz de Heem. The thick layer of paint protects the flowers against dying instantly during the application of the aggressive layer of resin.

Against better judgement, I tried to control that which is perishable, holding on to the very last moment the flower was still beautiful, capturing the moment before the flowers dies.
