This series explores the aesthetic possibilities of working with useless junk purchased at a dollar store, combined with flowers and other vegetation grown in my garden. It is based on the concept of the vanitas: 16th-17th century realistic still life paintings that exhorted the viewer to examine their lives and note that time on earth was short and fraught with peril; get yourself ready for the afterlife.
