Ruusu on ruusu on ruusu.
"For me a rose is some kind of key or a trigger for many memories. I have quite passionate feelings toward roses. For years I had a strong distaste for a rose type which is called the Kardinal rose."

"I have been handling roses for commercial purposes since childhood. When I was a teenager I thought that a deep coloured red rose was the most vulgar thing to give to someone. Later on I have changed my mind."
"In the beginning of the rose project I was first haunted by Gertude Stein’s “Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose” stanza, but I ended up building roses from different parts of decaying roses. Like Mary Shelley’s Victor Frankenstein."
Kardinal on osa Teresa Karin ja Nils Tituksen näyttelyä Sub - Rosa, joka on nähtävissä Project Roomissa ihan Hietalahden torin läheisyydessä Helsingissä 17.9. - 3.10.
