When one thinks of floral arrangements, images of perfect bouquets and conventional centerpieces are likely to spring to mind. While these traditional takes on flower displays are undoubtedly rooted in art, many contemporary creatives have taken the craft to the next level with their artistic and unconventional arrangements.

Ranging from abstract studies of color and balance to figurative pieces reminiscent of drawings and paintings, the compositions showcase the striking beauty of botanicals. Additionally, each piece conveys the artist's unique interpretation of flower art and his or her approach to the unconventional and unexpected medium.

In a unique take on traditional floral arrangements, contemporary artists are arranging blooms into unconventional works of flower art.

Floral Portraits by Sister Golden

To create her exquisite floral portraits, Vicki Rawlins—one half of the creative duo, Sister Golden—employs everything from dried leaves to colorful succulents. Set against simple backdrops, each ephemeral piece highlights the flowers' natural beauty while also demonstrating their artistic—and unexpected—versatility. “All the foliage gets recycled back into Mother Nature once I take the photo,” Rawlins tells us via email. “I'm always very careful never to sneeze while I'm working!!”
