Golden Tulips and Floral Brazil


Two photographs inside a cube

Moon Gallery, Nanoracks, Voyager Space

“Golden Tulips and Floral Brazil”, features two photographs facing outward inside a cube. The photographs include peach coloured Dutch tulips against a contrasting black background, along with a second photograph of wilderness in the Brazilian Rainforest. Prates chose these images to reflect the two elements that directly influenced him as an artist – the country where he lives and the country where he was born. The tulip, a symbol of the Netherlands, is not only a natural phenomenon, but a result of joint creativity between Man and Nature. It is an endearing example of how fruitful and harmonious this union can be. Conversely, Prates cites Brazil and its wild nature for his energy and creativity. With the combined flora photography, Prates highlights their magic and makes the audience consider how we can establish balance with nature.
