It was during the lockdown, deprived of the human subjects she prefers to work with, that Barbara Cole began to take an interest in the plants that surrounded her, and more particularly flowers. In her latest project “Appearances”, photographer based in Toronto, Canada, sublimates the beauty of the flowers she immortalized by creating a blurred movement. Through her technique and post-production work, the artist thus succeeded in infusing the classic aesthetic of oil painting in her pictures.
