The Frailty of Flowers

A New Series by Memphis-Based Artist Sarah Bell

Article by Christian Owen

Photography by Sarah Bell, Sélavie Photography

Originally published in River City Lifestyle

Sarah Bell is captivated by flowers – their colors, shapes, and scents. One of her favorite childhood memories is gardening with her mother in Corsica, France, but Sarah prefers wild flowers, the imperfect ones.

Her latest series of fine art photography shows flowers with a black background to remove distraction. She photographs fresh-cut and dying flowers, then weaves both prints together. Sarah says, "Weaving is a strong metaphor for understanding workings of the universe and our place in it."

Each image examines the flower's beauty as well as its irregularities and shortcomings…its frailty.
