Surreal Plant Sculptures Celebrate Nature’s Magic

Émeric Chantier, a visionary artist, breathes life into surreal plant sculptures that blur the boundaries between humans, animals, and nature. Through a meticulous fusion of faux greenery and organic elements, Chantier crafts intricate grassy forms adorned with delicate twigs and budding trees. His attention to detail, from muscle definition to overall proportion, yields extraordinary creations that exude an otherworldly presence, bridging the gap between our reality and a realm of uncanny connections.Green Plant Art

The inspiration for Chantier’s sculptures came from his desire to imitate nature in a miniature form. “The base of most sculptures are carved resin,” he explains to My Modern Met. “They are then covered with synthetic elements and other nature [such as] flowers or roots that are painted and varnished.” The process is an involved one, and it requires Chantier to forage French hillsides for materials and later use tweezers to place the finishing touches, like tiny petals on a figure’s cheek.

Chantier views his sculptures, which he calls “a fantasized nature,” as a form of three-dimensional illustrations. The figures are intended to convey feelings or encourage questions about how we relate to the Earth. “The work is not meant to be moralistic,” he says, “but challenging, reflexive, and meditative on the intrinsic link that unites the generational history of the Human with Nature.”
