“Fluffy Pink Peony”, 45 x 45 inches

Have you ever come across a piece of art that makes you do a double take? Well Australian Artist CJ Hendry specializes in trompe l’oeil designs. His latest series captures the intricate details of flower varieties in massive, hyper-realistic renderings.

Each is done using a variety of colored pencils. Hendry masterfully layers and blends the different hues to give dimension to his designs. As a result, her flowers seem to have real depth, so much so that they trick viewers into thinking the petals could be ripped from the paper.

This botanical series features representations of peonies, poppies and roses in pastel colours. Hendry magnifies their beauty in large-scale designs so that their intricate anatomy and unique coloring makes an even bigger impression. Indeed, the closer one looks at one of his pieces, the more details one is able to discover and appreciate.

Hendry is currently working on an upcoming exhibition in Mile End, London. Follow her on instagram for updates on his show and latest projects.
