Disassembling nature is not a common task, but for photographer Qi Wei Fong, it is his artistic vision. Qi Wei Fong’s series “Floral Paintings” takes the term “flower arrangement” to an entirely new meaning by making Mother Nature resemble fireworks. Qi Wei Fong showcases the radial symmetry found in flowers and the beauty of their individual components by tearing them apart and placing each part separately. By doing this, all of the various textures and shapes get to stand out on their own, becoming independent sections.
Wei has over a decade of experience in conceptual fine art photography and is based out of Singapore. “My philosophy is that an artist is a communicator and that the artist’s message should be an authentic one. The artist, in order to create a great work, should strive to ensure purity of the message”
