A Matter of Life and Death
"This painting was intended to be a modern-day vanitas, depicting house plants in contrasting states. It seemed that the purchasing of plants was becoming a rite of passage for young people moving out of their parents' homes, visibly wanting to show that they could handle more responsibility. The painting plays on this idea, with the figure cradling her neglected, decomposing plant."
