#TOAFtakeover Morning all! I’m Anna Thomas, and I generally describe myself as a botanical alchemist / artist. My work is entirely process driven and just quietly it’s also quite a lot of fun to make. The short version is that I cryo-freeze flowers in liquid nitrogen and then photograph them, smashed or smashing (see above). Today the lovely people at The Other Art Fair are letting me share more about my process and some of my work here. @fracturedflora #TheOtherArtFair #TakeoverTuesday (image by @alina_golovachenko) #🌹❄️🔨
#TOAFtakeover Well that’s it from me. Thank you to The Other Art Fair for having me today! If anyone is keen to know more please don’t hesitate to drop me a DM or email. Victorian locals are also welcome to arrange a visit to my (former) church house / studio / gallery. Have a wonderful evening everyone! @fracturedflora #TheOtherArtFair #TakeoverTuesday (image by @feesax) #🌹❄️🔨
#TOAFtakeover Here are some of my most recent 'action' image. These are by far the most fun to make. Petals flying, vapour swirling, camera clicking away at full speed. However, these shots are the most difficult to get the exact part of the flower I want in sharp focus, I burn through quite a few bunches to get just a few frames that I’m happy with. @fracturedflora #TheOtherArtFair #TakeoverTuesday #🌹❄️🔨
