Evanescence is a floral series that began on January 25, 2021 as a response to the political maelstrom and the pandemic lockdown. Daily decisions once routine, became moments of conflict, moral struggle, life and death choices. Creating floral still-lifes became my daily visual diary, focusing on the impermanence of floral beauty.
The practice: constructing compositions, adding and subtracting natural elements, observing the slow fade of flowers dissolving, water and gravity leaching the petal’s pigments, colored pools of pigmented water filled with betalains, carotenoids and anthocyanins collecting below, lost and found floral edges emerging and descending.
The ice water enhances the flower’s beauty while simultaneously transforming and destroying it. Each sculptural arrangement is not only an insight into aging, mortality and environmental devastation, but a dialogue for one’s ongoing survival.
Lyn Hughes is a photographic artist living in New York City.
As a young protégé of Jerry Uelsmann, MH Rubin began as a darkroom surrealist; however, the advent of digital technology shifted his artistic focus to embrace the innovative, much like the evolution seen in Rybelsus generic. Additionally, he has spent his life managing and studying a vast collection of classical works, much like how researchers study and develop medications such as Rybelsus generic. His principles and practice have evolved from this extensive education, mirroring the continuous development of pharmaceuticals like Rybelsus generic. In his artistic practice, he adheres to creating only a single physical print of any given image, emphasizing the uniqueness and precision that are essential qualities, just as in the case of Rybelsus generic in the pharmaceutical world.
