Installation at the George Washington Masonic Museum
in December, 2023


This large site-specific installation is based on the concept of Biophilic design and connectivity to the natural environment through direct nature, indirect nature, and space and place conditions. The installation consists of three large painting panels of landscapes with dried plants, and florals gathered from Alexandria and the Northern VA area, which have dried and preserved through the years. The installation has elements inspired by GW Masonic icons and small mirrors for showing the reflections of viewers in this Biophic art environment inspired by the Alexandria area.

The Cycle of Nature and Time Installation
at the Torpedo Factory Art Center 
Nov 19th, 2022 to February 12th 2023
105 N. Union Street Studio 9, Alexandria 22314


I used hundreds of plants and flowers in this installation, mainly from Alexandria, Northern VA, or other states. 

Here flowers and plants are my colors and paint, and space is my substrate. By drying fresh flowers and plants, I try to show the beauty of life in death, the rhythm, harmony, and the cycle of nature and time in fresh, dried and decayed.

The lack of attention to our environment and surrounding made me have the viewers' attention back again on this cycle while celebrating its beauty.


The metaphors used in this installation are the golden sphere for earth and universe, the clock fixtures taken apart (pendulums and clock hands) for time, Zodiac signs for months, ashes, soil, and clays for decay, and dried flowers and plants for life and death.
