Effects of the Flowers

Fong Qi Wei, a Singapore-based artist, picks apart flowers and rearranges them on a canvas to startling effect. The 33-year-old disassembles the flowers, such as this rose, by hand before carefully arranging the component parts. (Fong Qi Wei / Rex Features)

This image shows an exploded gerbera. The artist says: “Each of the images are done in one sitting, simply because flowers are amongst the most perishable things – so I cannot leave it half finished and work on it the next day as some petals may have wilted or dried up by then. I find that there is always a surprising amount of detail which we do not usually notice in flowers.” (Fong Qi Wei / Rex Features)
