Title

Anemones

Description

A table, whose covering appears to have been warped, becomes the space for an arrangement of anemones in a copper vase suspended by a thin spiraled black steel stand. An ashtray accompanies the flowers on the table, standing in the foreground. Cool blues and greens are incorporated on the ashtray, and deep purple, reds, and greens predominate in the flowers. An excess amount of leaves, uncommon for anemones, are included in the bouquet, spiraling down the vase and onto the ashtray. The structured, stable and neutral background space, combined with the possibly unstable vase and table, juxtaposes the stability of the space and time period as a whole.
