PROVENANCE Private Collection Zurich, originally from the exhibition "Floral Arrangements" (1997, Scalo Galerie, Zurich)

“The flowers are from a series I made slowly from 1995-1997. I had just finished college and had a 4 X 5 camera body with no lens. I also had no money, so I made a pinhole lens. The backgrounds are modified textiles, cheap fabric the patterns of which I ‘edited’ with acrylic paint. I bought the vases at a thrift store, painted them, and then would go to the farmers market and buy the cheapest flowers. I was really into the Becher school and anything ‘German photography’ at the time, but I was also into Matisse. I think I was trying to make a Matisse.” (Roe Ethridge, Interview in Artit Magazine, 2009)
