About The Work

SEDUCERS is a series of high-resolution scans that magnify the reproductive organs of flowers plucked from French impressionist painter Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny. E.V. Day spent three months in 2010 as the Munn Artist-in-Residence at The Claude Monet Foundation in Giverny. The electric, vibrant colors of the flowers in the images are true but she did manipulate each image by taking exactly half the image, and mirroring it, thereby forcing a perfect symmetry upon the natural geometry of each flower. Says Day of the series, “In each of the Seducers, whether a peony, a water lily, a clematis, I wanted to give the viewer the perspective of an insect hovering in front of it. And in making it symmetrically perfect—akin to Hermann Rorschach’s ink-blotter tests—I wanted to enhance the almost kaleidoscopic sense of motion I found at the flower’s center. The elegance of the flowers when flattened and scaled up becomes awesome, fleshy and even monstrous. I think of each of the Seducers as a portal into the startling intelligence found in a mindless organism.”
