Seattle-based artist Meggan Joy creates beautiful, flowery, human-like figures. The process begins with her planting the seeds and lasts for months. Joy carefully cultivates her plants in a community garden all summer long. Once they’re in fool bloom, she starts snapping photos and combines them into digital collages that represent female bodies. The collages are enriched with birds, butterflies, and other garden life.
“Color and texture form each woman’s shape, and from the photographs of once-living individual things, portraits of ethereal beings begin to emerge,” the artist tells This is Colossal. Her latest series, titled Battle Cry, shows women in conflict.
