"Green is both a highly natural and highly artificial color. It seems to signify both organic growth and disintegration. The green color in the orchid painting is taken from a see-through-plastic notebook cover, so the flower is seen through an artificial filter. I've read that it is statistically proven that the semen of men is getting weaker and less fertile and that at the same time some plants' stamens have changed sex in order to survive. I see this flower as feminine." (Luc Tuymans)
