There is nothing more beautiful than a rose. From its initial stages as a teardrop bud to the unfurling of its velvety petals — it is beauty in its purest form. Melbourne photographer, Fabrice Bigot, has captured the rose’s ephemeral majesty in his latest exhibition ‘BLOOM’ at MARS gallery. Held in honor of International Women’s Day, the exhibit reads as an ode to women, with each rose acting as a symbol of individuality and haunting beauty.
Bigot transports the viewer to the early morning hours in various Victorian gardens, drawing the flower into focus with his play on light and heightened colour. One can almost taste the fresh morning dew, touch the rose’s silky petals and smell its sweet scent. Bigot’s work allows us to experience a moment in time that is both familiar and meditative, and therein lies the artist’s power.
As part of the exhibition we transformed Bigot’s work ‘Flores Venerae #7’ into a pure silk chiffon scarf. Limited to just 50 pieces, a percentage from the sale of the scarves will be donated to Global Fund for Women to support anti-violence programs around the world. Available at both MARS Gallery and The Store, this is a scarf that celebrates the beauty of being a woman— thorns and all.
