Inspired by everyday finds, Dutch artist Anne Ten Donkelaar reinvents small, common objects, giving them a new life and meaning, telling a story about their past existence, and creating a newer and better one, altogether. At the base of her art, we find damaged butterflies, broken twigs, bumblebees, or strangely grown weeds. There’s no better proof that art emerges from practically everything.
For her flower collection, the artist used pressed flowers and cut out flower pictures. Each item is carefully pinned to a white canvas, creating depth for each individual piece.
