From the very beginning, Stephan Spicher’’s intellectual and artistic exploration of the origin and nature of the BLOSSOM has evolved on the level of various artistic means and positions. First gold flowers started to unfold on picturesque atmospheric backgrounds, applied on canvas and aluminium, works, which the artist exhibited in two major exhibitions at the Ludwig Museum in the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg and in the New National Library in Singapore. In a following step, Spicher created works in which blossoms from lacquer on paper literally seemed to detaches themselves from their background, thus becoming independent ‘‘picture-objects’’. Consequently, by now the artist began to detach his BLOSSOMS out of her pictorial context and to treat them as free forms of their own.
