Created by Japanese artist Macoto Murayama, Inorganic Flora shows us new observations and studies of flowers like never before. He first takes a number of photos and sketches of plants from nearly every angle. He then uses an array of digital programs, like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and even 3-D modeling, to create highly visual works. By highlighting and separating specific pieces of the flora, Murayama wants to show the technical and almost mechanical aspects of these organic organisms.
Murayama says that “a plant possesses a contradictory element of [a] geometric/mechanical structure.” By drawing our attention to these pieces, he has revealed two separate visions; the ones that are more like diagrams, labeled in a very technical way, and the more artistic side that shows the beauty of their forms and shapes in bright colors. These works and many more will premiere at the Frantic Gallery in Japan from January 12th until the 15th.
