HANDWRITTEN WITH FLOWERS

THE DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

 

 

"HANDWRITTEN WITH FLOWERS was made in January 2020 during residency at the Emily Harvey Foundation in Venice. I took pages from a book of reproductions of flowers which was published in the 1950s. Most of the flowers had been painted in the 1800s. I added backgrounds to the flowers and handwrote the entire text of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS in English over the reworked images. The entire text is legible. The edition presented here is a digitally reproduced version of the original work." (Morgan O'Hara)
