'Flowers Absence and Loss' - Nigel Rolfe

Limited Edition Digital Prints

This set of prints is a recent development taken from various past projects where flowers are used as a basis for memory or loss. They are momento mori, memories for dearly departed, for the loss of children and other personal relationships, and as memorials for public political crimes.
