I can almost taste the pretty iced roses of my childhood birthday cakes… après finger-swipe ‘n lick! This is the gorgeous work of UK based artist Simone Truong, and here are the thoughts behind it {which have absolutely nothing to do with icing}:

… [She] explores themes of flora and fauna in her work. A juxtaposition between the mundane and the beautiful coalesce to represent the transitionary states that occur in natural phenomena. By bleeding the present with the past and the inevitable future of the flora and fauna, a new, more permanent vision is realised and the temporariness is removed.

Lovely. And with that, I’ll wish you a happy weekend! … ps. you can find some of this work in Simone’s online shop.
