Patiently Arranged Dandelion Works by Botanical Artist Duy Anh Nhan Duc (7 pics)




All images via Duy Anh Nhan Duc Self-taught botanical artist  Duy Anh Nhan Duc  uses a steady hand to arrange dandelion blossoms in artful imitations of their flight through the air. His monochrome works are each reminiscent of a universal childhood urge to scatter a dandelion’s seedlings with a single blow, eager to watch the feathery pieces take flight in the wind. With this in mind he carefully dissects a dandelion’s fluff, placing the individual seeds in concentric patterns. In many works gold leaf is used to single out some of the miniature components, adding another layer of precision to his patiently executed fields of flora. His solo exhibition,  The Imaginary Herbarium , is currently on view at Galerie Bettina in Paris through February 15, 2017. You can see more of his works on his Instagram  and website . (thnx, Laura!)
