With this series of artworks the artist raises the question where the nature has its place in art? Myers juxtaposes the fact that flowers in paintings are usually frozen in the same momentum, whereas in real life, they have a lifecycle which has many facets and metamorphoses. Nevertheless in paintings the flower becomes alive and vibrant through the power of its composition and the emotion it is transmitting.
Besides the rather philosophical examination of the flower-motif, his quest is dedicated to the evolutionary contemplation.
The artist’s ultimate goal is that people are able to get lost in the composition and are able to detect new forms every day. His gesture gives the primal direction of the compositions, but at some point the random process takes over and the compositions evolve by questioning the place of abstraction in the figurative. Indeed, the final result seems abstract while in reality they represent accumulations of flowers.
Without doubt the fact of not drawing them in a representative shape makes the final result more difficult to read by offering the viewer several levels of reading.
