Artist's Statement

Call me weird, but whenever I see roses, I always want to eat them. Something about the velvet delicacy of the petals look so appetizing to me. However, I never do because in my heart, I know that it will taste pretty bad despite its lovely appearance. Also, I find it quite strange that one finds such a fragile and delicate flower to be appetizing enough to be eaten.. rather than just to admire her beauty from a far.

So, I decided to paint the most mysterious, beautiful woman who has to consume another beautiful life form in order to exist.

The rose eater places the delicate velvet petal between her pearl teeth. As I hear the gentle crunch, my heart tears itself into two.
