Dutch artist, Anne ten Donkelaar, uses things she finds outside such as wildflowers, weeds, damaged butterflies, broken twigs, and stems in addition to paper cutouts and tiny pins to make the most charming three dimensional collages. And once she's done putting these lovely pieces together, she then encases them in glass to "give [the] objects a second life and hope to inspire people to make up their own stories about them." Personally, what I enjoy most about Donkelaar's art is how bright and alive they are, that the items she uses cast elegant shadows because of their elevation on pins, how clean and organized everything appears to be, and that Donkelaar's art allows people to rediscover the beauty the tiniest facets of nature have.
If you'd like to see more of Donkelaar's work be sure to visit her website! Has anyone ever heard of or perhaps, seen some of Donkelaar's work before?
