shirin gunny

Gasp! No need for paint, paper, or beads when you are surrounded by Mother Nature’s art supplies! This series, titled “Floral Accord”, is the work of Mauritius born, Montreal based artist Shirin Gunny. Here is a small snippet of her story, how these natural wonders came to be:

… After a few wanderings between China and Montreal, Shirin decided to return to her native island. Driven by her passion to create and interest in experimentation, she started looking for unique materials. One day, while foraging and plucking flowers in her tropical garden, she was stunned by the richness of the shapes and colours available at hand. She decided to arrange the organic materials and discovered that the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating ephemeral art using seasonal flowers.

“When I start, I never know what the result will be. It all comes together in a very natural way. Whether it’s the amount of flowers I’ve managed to pluck on that day, the colours and shapes I was able to find. Part of the process feels a bit like magic because I always end up having the exact amount of seeds, petals and leaves that are required to finalise a piece.”

Read her whole story right here … it’s a good one!
