    Wesley Dombrecht

The idea behind the series ‘Sprouting & rotting’ was to capture ingredients that are in the state of sprouting or dissolution,there original form wil rot away & wil make place for new life, roots or seeds. By the use of very simply composition and lighting,whit lots of dark umber tones, i wanted the likeness of an old painting , whit a surreal twist.
