In the color black lies the insight of death, it reminds me of the end. We all live in the presence of death and it can both stimulate and paralyze. It can bring both hope and dispair. These black rosebuds are for the swedish musician Moto boy who brings calmness to my inner thoughts. His voice combines the wonder and the sorrow one can feel about life. In art the motif vanitas seeks to express this: life and death, rosebuds and dead leaves.
