Today, the art of flowers is inevitably interwoven with ecology and genetic research.  Art, technology, science, symbolism, mythology, aesthetics and sensuality meet in the plant.  The flower is today a domain of its complex genetic information, but also a vision as unimpeachable longing for naturalness through colorful opulent imagery of flowers and plants.  The representations of the flowers in the moment of their full flowering emphasizes the moment, but also by means of pictorial visualization memories are created and the transience is stopped.  The cultivation of plants is a symbol of the artificial, man-made creation as a counterpart to the wild nature.

 The flower is again used as a symbol for the different forms of the changes of our time, which are not least associated with an aesthetizing delusion.  The quest for beauty and perfection, after surpassing nature, is one of many reasons for choosing flowers as a subject.  Similarly, flowers represent transience not only of beauty, but of earthly life par excellence, thus symbolizing the cyclical, ephemeral nature of physical existence, as well as explicit sexuality.  However, the primary attraction remains the still generally positive association with the flower as a symbol of beauty and life.

 But the flower is also a longing motive, which expresses an ultimately insatiable desire for the intangible other.  This pantheistic inspired view of nature is under the influence of a profound cultural pessimism, increasing alienation of man from nature as a new way of life.  The return to nature is the only possible way to regenerate a homeless society.  Through the harmonious unity of man and nature, it is possible to recognize the interrelations between the visible and the invisible, the material and sensory mental world, in order to feel and show understanding and duty of care towards nature.

 Nature is and remains a reflection of the artistic individual looking for expression.
