“Flower Studies”, the enchanting third album by Australia’s Blue Chemise, consists of eight intimate, delicate and touching ‘études’, reflecting Mark Gomes’ introspective musings on a series of floral studies by 19th-century French photographer Adolphe Braun (1812-1877). 

Behold whither eventually 

Imposing sounds and a grandiose bleakness 

Majestic flowers in centuries-old photographs 

And silences where heather grows 

No story, only depictions of flowers 

Nature filtered through a temperament 

The suggestion of poetical ideas 

Nature draws the imagination to infinity 

Paysages composés 

Like beautiful melodies 

Nature’s great harmony 

Is that of an immense and divine keyboard 

The diffused freshness of budding greenery 

A cult for flowers 

Privately eavesdropping on nature 

To hear the voices of the trees 

— Mark Gomes (Blue Chemise)
