Two new stunning pieces today from London-based artist Claire Brewster (previously) who creates delicate montages of birds, bees, and plants cut from maps. Some of her cartographic sculptures are cut by hand while others, like these, are laser cut and then pinned onto a board. Brewster shares via her artist statement:

Nature is ever present, even in the most urban environments, taking over wherever we neglect, living in a separate yet parallel universe. I take my inspiration from the natural environment, creating entomological installations of flora and fauna from imagined locations. My birds, insects and flowers transcend borders and pass freely between countries with scant regard for rules of immigration or the effects of biodiversity.

Brewster currently has several pieces on view at Pitfield London through June 20, 2014. (via Lustik)
