Intentionally creating a topsy-turvy journey through the rifts, valleys, and mountains of epidermal cells, so unbelievably small, I painstakingly inserted nano images measuring approximately 20 μm, in to the flowers I photographed with a macro lens.
Imagine a landscape of one million mountains covering a single rose petal of 2x2cm2 — where an atom to a rose cell is the equivalent to a hedgehog to Mont Blanc!
The first composition is a close reproduction, of “Still Life with Flowers on a Marble Tabletop”, an oil painting by the Dutch artist, Rachel Ruysch, 1716, (collection of the Rijks Museum, Amsterdam).
