Cedric Laquieze is an artist working out of Amsterdam. He graduated from the Rietveld Academy just last year, and primarily creates sculptures. Very unique ones such as the flower skeleton series seen below. I like the idea that Cedric has taken the idea of taxidermy art, and added a different twist to it. The idea of skeleton is a clear link to death, but with the flowers adorning them the idea seems to be softened. It’s also a stronger connection to life; if we did not go through such trouble to embalm and preserve, the bodies we bury would give way to other life such as flowers. Cedric has many more sculptures, photography and so on over at his blog. Head on over and check it out.
