In words of the fauvist artist Henri Matisse: “There are always flowers for those who want to see them”. A way of understanding life with an essential optimist and loving nature to become part of us, living with it and let it transport you to magical places. There are people who live with this philosophy, decorating and wrapping spaces in such peculiar ways, transforming something bleak into something fascinating.

“Postures” by Carl Kleiner
Carl Kleiner, Swedish conceptual photographer, shows in this series of photographs minimalist sculptures made of flowers, which are put up with a fine wire. With this, he wants to express different emotions through flowers. For example, the flower bud stuck with the ground represents the feeling of sadness. This work gets you to imagine a story of harmony mixing the delicacy of the flowers with the cold material of their surroundings, forming the sensations and feelings that characterize people. Just a spectacular work of art.
