Magnolia: A Love Story

Shannon Stackhouse's avatar Shannon Stackhouse

My artwork focuses on the natural world, much a focused meditation on the form and function of individual biological specimens: flowers, fruits, vegetables, a marriage of science and art. These photographs are part of a larger project entitled "Flower, Seed, Stalk." These still lifes incorporate an additional strand of abstraction and metaphor, placing flowers (in this case) against a black background, out of their natural setting of earth and insects into a studio environment of clean manufactured texture and light, to highlight their forms, their sculptural beauty. They explore intimacy and isolation, delicacy and abundance.
