This edition was created from the remains of a large installation work titled "Red on Green" shown at the ICA London. The installation consisted of 10,000 English hybrid tea roses, the heads pulled from their stems and placed side by side forming a dense cover over a rectangular bed of the stalks. The two pastels in this edition, one red and one green, were made from the ground remains of one dozen of these roses.
