Exploded Flowers by Fong Qi Wei / fqwimages | Emma Lamb
All images: Fong Qi Wei / fqwimages

I am sure many of you will have already seen this gorgeous Exploded Flower series by Fong Qi Wei / fqwimages since they seem to have already done the blogging rounds, but I still wanted to talk about them here today.

Of course this is a really pretty collection of photography that would look fabulous on any of my walls here. Yes it's really intriguing to see a deconstructed flower head with all of it's parts laid out in such a pretty and inspirational arrangement. And obviously I'm loving the colour pattern too... ;)

But the first thing I see whenever I look at any of these is the white background, the negative space... Ha! Negative space. I don't think that phrase has crossed my lips since my college years! But yes, that's what I am drawn to here particularly in the red rose (pictured first). I can't help myself looking for shapes and pathways through these petals as though they are a maze waiting to be solved. Then I start to feel the chaos of these broken flowers and a need for order, but since the petals are so perfectly arranged to create such an intriguing negative space I feel content to cycle through this thought process again. It meditative in a way.

From Fong Qi Wei...

"I try to engage my audience by providing a new perspective on familiar subjects or themes. Through my art, I hope to introduce my point of view to my the viewer and engage them beyond aesthetics. I wish to provoke them to think further about the familiar and ordinary."
