“thirsty, then boosted” by Cornelius de Bill Baboul

“Thirsty, then boosted” depicts the process of white flower petals soaking up the pigments contained in colorful sports drinks until the plants become red, orange, purple, green…
The result is a colorful series where the natural and the artificial merge beyond good and evil.
Like kids on ecstasy in a techno club celebrating the end of the world, the flowers mirror an ambiguous yet contemporary feeling, a kind of optimistic spleen – like Charles Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal in the age of energy drinks.

By Berlin-based artist CORNELIUS DE BILL BABOUL.
