The floral images that make up Lude by Isabelle Menin, an artist and photographer based in Brussels, Belgium, is dark and surreal. The images of the bouquets have been digitally manipulated to give them the impression that they are melting into each other. In this way, they are giving a watercolor effect that is reminiscent of Claude Monet's French impressionist paintings.

A striking play between light and shadow, form and reflections as well as color and texture, Lude by Isabelle Menin is full of complexity. The artist likens her work to the human spirit, writing, "We are no straight lines, we are like nature, a very large network of interferences that work together to produce something which sometimes looks accomplished and then gets destroyed in a perpetual coming and going between order and disorder."
