Cut and Pressed

Post image for Cut and Pressed

I’m so taken with these “Flower Constructions” by Anne Ten Donkelaar – they are collages carefully pieced together with pressed flowers and with cutouts from pictures of flowers. Lovely!

She also has  a “Broken Butterfly” series, of broken butterflies she has repaired with new wings and bodies – they’re amazing.

The wings of this one are partially made with maps of where it originated.

I love how 3 Dimensional these look even though they’re pressed. Stunning… I would adore having a few of these in my home. :)

I love it, and I also love the fact that there is finally a dutch artist who did some really great stuff here. :P
