Obregón’s work, like that of Feliciano Centurión (also in this gallery), deals with the poetry of small gestures. Obregón spent many years obsessively dissecting and cataloguing flower petals. This repetitive and ultimately futile activity suggests the meticulous focus of scientific analysis, but it is more importantly a search for the essence of love through the artist’s determined attempt to somehow get inside one of love’s most powerful symbols.
