With BLOOM, Thomas Flechtner continues to go his own way as an artist. In his internationally acclaimed debut publication SNOW, he took viewers by surprise with a compelling visual metaphysics of snow as the exploration of a psychological state. After exhibitions in London, New York, Bilbao, and Tokyo, Flechtner is now free to pursue a new passion, the unbridled color and movement of organic nature, which he examines with lyrical lightness and tremendous precision in these densely atmospheric studies of plants. As a photographer, Flechtner goes in search of the essence of nature, abandoning the ostensible safety of distance and allowing proximity and for the first time also movement. In BLOOM, the viewer is invited to take in a feast of light and color and to enter a space beyond naturea (TM)s supposed laws.
