The Rose Garden: photographic series by Sara Sweet

The Rose Garden is a photographic series that invites and tempts the viewer to uncover the dark and mystical intentions behind the work. Having been influenced by the Baroque period, and the traditional theories of the 18th century sublime, the works strategically present an intriguing scene of what appears to be a decaying rose garden.

The brownness of time can be seen eating away at the once vibrant and youthful roses. The subjects in the series share strong similarities with the roses as they too are fading towards their demise. Hence, the rose acts as a perfect metaphor for humanities’ transition though life. It may be possible to preserve the rose for a short moment, however decay is unavoidable. Time and its process is one of the most fascinating aspects of life and the beauty within this should be highlighted.
