Vignettist: a person who makes vignettes
Vignette: any small endearing scene, view, picture, etc
Hello fellow plant lovers, I know you are out there. Today I’m sharing some photographs I took of some of my plants.
I love to create small set ups or tableau’s for photography. Styling an area of my home so it evokes a certain mood or feeling. Perhaps bringing the viewer in, piquing their curiosity.
I’m a vignettist!
I created this vignette for this months Urban Jungle Bloggers theme of Plants and Words.
For this scene I wanted to evoke feelings of time gone by, but also the freshness, inspiration and new growth that comes with owning plants.
The title “The Vignettist” gives these images a feeling of old cinema. Films like The Jazz Singer come to mind. Maybe Charlie Chaplin’s The Gold Rush, perhaps even the more modern; The Artist.
The Barber board which the title is mounted on is also of a different era. Reinforcing the old and new themes I love.
I feel a little like I’m back on my Fine Art degree sharing all this; discussing the why’s and wherefore’s of my creative decision making!
I hope you find it interesting?
I never used plants before to create art, but they are so full of life that they are the perfect subject.
This tableau of plants and words is sitting on a very old chest of drawers (find out more about the drawers in this video) and the planters are all new except for the peachy one at the back with a matching saucer, which is vintage. The African figurines were via a car boot sale and the plants themselves are mostly Ikea, supermarket and Plant Shop Manchester, which are based in Stockport.
