author’s comments:
Helen Ahpornsiri creates intricate collages using real flowers and foliage, which are foraged or grown, then preserved with traditional flower-pressing methods. The plants are organized by species or color before being cut and delicately arranged to form birds, insects, and other creatures, all filled with tiny patterns and tangles of plant life.
