These 11 works were created in six months during the Covid-19 pandemic. They were inspired by the flowers, their transience, but also their ability to transform and become beautiful through withering, to overcome decay. All the works are drawn on A4 copy paper in pastels, which recalls flower pollen due to the powdery texture. A4 copy paper is a tribute to Yago’s job as an art director.
