It is rare after looking at a piece of art that I feel compelled to return to it, not just once but time and again. Such was the case with Ignacio Canales Aracil , a Spanish sculptor, who wanted to share his work with me. To say I was awed by what I saw would be an understatement. The photos below are part of a series called Fragility of Time; the sculptures are made with flowers and plants. I urge you to check out Ignacio’s website; it is rich and displays his wide range of talent.
Below is Ignaico’s description of his thoughts, the actual process of how he goes about making these delicate sculptures and the emotional impact that working with them has had on him. I am thrilled to introduce you to this talented sculptor. Fran Sorin
“The sculptures are made with flowers and plants from different gardens and
nurseries that work in collaboration with me. They allowed me to cut their
flowers and work on their premises while choosing, pressing and drying the
flowers. The sculpture number 1 in the picture has been made with flowers
from Wild About Flowers Nursery in Devon. Sculpture #2’s flowers are from Pembroke-Lodge in Richmond Park (Royal Parks). I have collaborated also with The London Garden Museum.
