Hommage to the Queen of the Night 2015-17

In 1992 I started to cultivate a Queen of the Night Cactus (Epiphylum oxipetalum). Over the years the plant has become the size of a small tree. From June through the end of September it produces luxurious white blooms the size of a hand, whose fragrance is intoxicating. The blooms open around sunset and are already wilting before sunrise next morning. Observing this spectacle inspired me to create this work.
