Plant Art !
A living green wall.
An antidote to cynicism.
A meditation on love.
Pressed flowers sculptures of Ignacio Canales Aracil. Spanish artist.

The art of flower pressing dates back thousands of years; pressed flowers were reportedly discovered in a 3,000-year-old coffin of Tutankhamun’s mother in Egypt, and both Greek and Roman botanists were known to preserve plants using techniques that continue today. But Aracil’s method is a bit different, relying on large cone-shaped molds into which carefully woven patches of hand-picked flower stems are placed. The pieces dry for up to a month without the aid of adhesives and are sprayed with a light varnish to protect the sculpture from moisture. The final pieces, which could be crushed with even the slightest weight, are rigid enough to stand without support.
Dimensional paper collages – Amy Genser / Collages are built from layered, rolled, and cut paper that are adhered to painted surfaces.
Amy Genser plays with paper and paint to explore her obsession with texture, pattern, and color. Evocative of natural forms and organic processes, her work is simultaneously irregular and ordered. She uses paper as pigment and constructs her pieces by layering, cutting, rolling, and combining paper.
The natural world is a clear source for Amy’s work. She is fascinated by the flow of water, the shape of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed. Her pieces bring to mind aerial landscape views, satellite imagery, and biological cellular processes.
Amy’s love affair with paper began in a paper-making class at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she received a masters degree in Graphic Design. Amy lives in West Hartford, CT with her husband and three sons, and spends her summers on the beach in Rhode Island.
