Fashioned in red transparent acrylic, A Dozen Roses is a replica of the bouquet carried by Jackie Kennedy on the day her husband, President John F Kennedy, was assassinated. Symbolising both love and mortality, the flowers appear as if frozen in time, hovering between a state of transience and permanence. With subjects ranging from the American actress Farrah Fawcett to the artist''s own mother, Edmier''s work pays homage to the memories of a generation who grew up in the 1970s.
