The Clock of Ageing of a Flower explores how women are central to the family structure. The artist examines the roles women play across different generations, ranging from daughters, wives and mothers to grandmothers and great grandmothers. Inspired by an old family photo, the artist painted a picture of her paternal great grandmother holding a young female member of the family. The artist used the seat of an antique wooden stool as her canvas to convey the passing of time and to reiterate how women have always been the foundation of the family.
