Efflorescent Cherry
by Matt Slater
'Efflorescent Cherry is an exploration of the beauty of imperfection and the traces of human touch and its anomalies.

At the core of Efflorescent Cherry, there are strong accents of an ancient Japanese aesthetic and worldview known as Wabi-sabi.

Wabi-sabi aesthetics comprise of characteristics such as asymmetry, irregularity, roughness, minimalism, modesty, intimacy and to see value of the ingenuous integrity of natural entities and processes.

Impermanence, the acceptance of transience and the serenity that comes with the process of ageing also permeate throughout this ethereal body of work.

Throughout this work the intimate confrontation with the fleeting moment heightens the appreciation of the beauty within these transitory states.'
