Each element of a flower works together to grow and sprout a beautiful bloom. To me this whole series of inflorescence is a metaphor of life. It takes so many working parts, so many different traveled paths, and a little help from other elements to create a masterpiece such as a flower in bloom. All of these flowers displayed tonight are located on property here at the Maui Tropical Plantation. I was inspired to play with light and views of these plant varieties. I wanted to highlight that inflorescence is all about the process of growth and the working together of so many different parts to create something that brings happiness, light and something to be shared. Take what you will from the display of my work; but keep in mind that we are all here together and there is enough room for all of us to bloom.
