Euphorium Brooklyn Pétales by Stephen Dirkes / Inspired by Tal Shpantzer's “Petal Series”
The intricacy of artistic, ethereal and sensual synergy between two individuals may provide fertile soil for the quickening of creativity. In Stephen Dirkes' fragrance Pétales, partner / photographic artist Tal Shpantzer's provocative, majestic stark portraiture (emblazoned with blooms where one least expects them) breathes as Muse. The Scented Skein links them inextricably: aroma is interwoven with image as tapestry. Stephen has rendered a succulent floridity composed of wildly variant fragrant dramatis personae: its overture is a clarion of soprano blossoms vying for pride of place – a cornucopia, floral polyphony. Blooms which favor blithe light of day consort with night-blooming creatures: those which flourish in shadow under foot, and ripe-to-bursting figs dripping with honey spinning in exotic spice.
These fragrant components weave in and out throughout Pétale's development. One feels intoxicated, slightly disoriented, sated, and more than a whit troubled – clearly aligning symbiotically with Tal's marvelous images. Isn't that what art is all about?
