…and so much so, that it inspired me to create a new series on my blog – “creative crushing” – a place to swoon and gawk over the creatives and creations that are above and beyond.
So I’m in love, for starters, with Dutch artist Anne Ten Donkelaar and her series “Flower Constructions“. Yep, totally crushing. Her flower constructions are 3-D collages created from pressed flowers and cut out pictures of flowers, plants, mushrooms, and the like. She places each element, meticulously, on pins and then builds her fantastical specimens. The pins create depth and shadow, making each piece a dynamic, interactive, changing sculpture.
They are at once, magical, colorful, creepy, pretty, pop-arty, biological, and architectural, and I am in love.
