Artist's description:

Moments for the Mortal is a part of a University project for art school. Here is the artist statement:
There is a vase that is weeping because its once red roses have now died. Above it hangs a picture of a vase that is shaped like two faces intimately entwined, with closed eyes. Inside the vase are many different flowers with faces displaying easily relatable human emotions. The vase below represents the emotional response one gets when coming to terms with the mortality of all that they love and the drawing of the vase and flowers above represents the perfection of intimacy one can reach within a precious moment. Either side of the flowers are two acrylic paintings of lovers doing simple things together such as making fruit salad and reading a book together in bed. The moment captured is precious yet it is inevitable that one day, one of them will be the weeping vase of decaying flowers. Perhaps, being creatures aware of our mortality allows us to love more deeply and though our destiny is debatable and our failures many, precious are the times that we experience a moment that is perfect.
