Australian artist Dane Lovett creates these beautiful realistic still-life paintings using found objects, plants and flowers. He uses popular items from popular modern culture, fusing them with the nature around us. To create his art, Lovett attaches a vine of flowers to a keyboard, places a vase of flowers in a notebook, sets potted plants on top of a speaker and synthesizer, and infuses various other musical objects like old LPs and cassette tapes.

This contrast between technology and nature is something that most people deal with every day. The future has better, more efficient ways to deal with things, but is it really better? Is there a way that we can fuse the old naturalist way of things with the current future-based way of thinking? Dane Lovett's creative flower creations are certainly thought-provoking as well as aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.
