"Fleurs de Paris is a study of floral compositions which cross-references both the 18th century French Floral Still Life Paintings and the Pointillism of George Seurat through the use of a dot filter. Taking as a starting point the flower engravings of Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer from Le livre de toute sortes de fleurs d’après nature (The Book of All Kind of Flowers after Nature), the still life compositions are broken up with images of Paris allowing the book to flow into a dream-like narrative of the city."
