'Exploded Flowers' by Fong Qi Wei is a delicately depicted portrait series. The artist disassembles flowers and arranges them in a way that reveals their individual components that include petals, leaves and stems.
These beautiful and organic artworks showcase a multitude of complex structures found throughout botany and the natural world. Photographer Qi Wei's stunning series aims to put emphasis on the symmetry of flowers, examining a variety of interesting shapes, textures and rich colors.
The series is not only visually dynamic but insightful, revealing the size of certain flowers compared to others. When comparing a rose's composition to that of a sunflower, one can detect that the rose's surface area is larger despite its smaller demeanor. These captivating compositions stand alone as powerful pieces of art while fitting in to an intriguing collection.
