Iris, traditionally viewed as a bridge to the otherworldly and ethereal, possesses a dynamic quality about it—almost dancing on its own. Echoing the romantic depictions of the Iris flower in mythologies across the Old World, this vase-and-flower piece is redolent with passion and movement. Seeming to be almost the personification of love itself, the Iris blazes with a ravishing and vivacious energy. View the self through flowers, view the world through a vase. Through the passionate iris, we are shown eternal love.
