Like ice sculptures and sandcastles on a beach, floral art does not last. The camera must record it if we wish to enjoy it for long. Expressions shows more than just ordinary flower arrangements. It is a selection of modern masterpieces of floral art by 47 instructors of the Belgian Flower Arrangement Society, the BFAS. The importance of the BFAS in the evolution of floral art in Belgium cannot be underestimated. For forty years this association of amateur artists has made an important contribution to floral art in Belgium and has provided a breeding ground for many professional artists in floral decoration. Thierry Dauwe's photographs of often intriguing and challenging floral works of art show an incredible feeling for the subject. Ivo Pauwels has written a poetic text to accompany each extraordinary picture. Expressions records the brilliant and evocative floral art of the twenty-first century for posterity.
