Loves Me, Loves Me Notis a series of ten 16x24” Chromaluxe prints of scanned artificial flowers, some of which were moved as the light passed underneath for a glitching effect. Much of the research for this project focused on the folklore and meanings of flowers. The end result are images with striking glossiness, vibrancy, and beauty that evoke a sense of otherworldliness. With the dark background printed on a highly reflective surface, the image becomes difficult to enter. There is a physical separation between the natural world and the world we seem to be looking at. The surface of the image then functions as a plane: a portal looking into a domain of artificial perfection, full of beautiful colors and textures. With this in mind, the glitched flowers convey a sense of this perfect world touching the plane of the portal; reaching out to our natural world of imperfections.
