After settling into my new neighborhood, I became curious about experiencing Beverly Hills at night, a sight I had never encountered before. I embarked on a nighttime bike ride, discovering that several houses illuminated their front lawns, casting a radiant glow akin to headlights on a car. It struck me as peculiar and intriguing to witness an array of plants, shrubbery, and flowers transformed into an outdoor sculpture garden under the cover of darkness. As I ventured further, amidst the well-lit surroundings, I came across a solitary flower standing out amidst a sea of vines.

In this image, my intention was to capture the perspective of a plant basking in a continuous source of light. At the time, I was exploring the depiction of pain in art and found inspiration in the works of Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. I decided to incorporate elements of their artistic styles into my own, resulting in a unique fusion. Through this collaboration of styles, I aimed to convey the essence of the plant’s experience and evoke a sense of emotional intensity.
