21 Roses are symbolic, meaning “I am dedicated to you.” In this rendition - dedicated to oneself. With this project, Madeleine aims to incorporate emotions evoked during COVID-19. Being in confined spaces during this new normal, many have had more time to dedicate to themselves and to reflect. Confronting this new reality, being alone with your own thoughts for an unpredictable amount of time can be fearsome. The purpose behind “21 Roses” is to promote optimism, highlighting self love and inner stimulation to remember and revere individual purpose.
