“The art of pressing and preserving flowers has been around for countless centuries. Not only is it a beautiful and simple way to retain the memory of a moment, but it’s a green way to create an incredible piece. Spanish artist Ignacio Canales Aracil has taken this crafty technique and bumped it up a notch with his airy and delicate sculptures. Part  surrealism, Aracil’s flower sculptures are woven together and explore the fragility of time.”
