MakersPlace Art Challenge 5-5-5. Week 3. 'True-To-Size Disguise.'

In my drawings and paintings, I often juxtaposed related and unrelated elements, with sizes that were bigger than life-size against smaller shapes.

Now in my ephemeral art, I simulate an environment/landscape from natural elements and then decorate the structure with flowers and plants.

The idea behind this piece was to replicate a swampy black pond/mire with banks of natural Australian bushland: She Oaks and Grevillias. And then decorate it with an abundance of 'End of Winter turning into Spring' flowers: Fairy Azaelias, African Iris and Freesias.

BEWARE THE MIRE constructed from black seaweed floating in a shallow glass dish ~ Disguised by the beauty of flowers.

This is so beautiful Ally. It reminds me of woodlands dotted with flowers. The flowers in the center look like stars. It is so gentle and pretty. I love your work - they remind me of all things good and gentle.

So pleased you like this piece Indrani. It always struck me as being quite ironic that I love simplicity in design and minimalistic imagery and yet when I'm making 'environments' like this one they tend to become 'over the top' prolific. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎
