Aborted Flower This is one of Hideo Hagiwara's well know and remarkable images, also known as 'Devil Flower'; the flower floats as if in space on a densely textured ground of blues and black. Surrounded by a dark shadow, the white, seeded interior gleams and colorful leaves emerge from its center.
Locus (Black) Hagiwara has created a surface of black and purple that is composed of subtle patterns of white and light purple shades; these advance and recede, thus creating a surface that appears to move, presenting the beholder a continuously fascinating image.
