May Florals: Floral Art

Art That Speak Universal Language, Lasts a Lifetime

Banner - May '23 Floral Blog

Since humans have inhabited this planet, the beauty of nature has immersed their lives. In nature, flowers have one simple purpose – reproduction. And in essence, the reproduction of beauty and life itself. Much like the reproduction of life and beauty is where we also find the reproduction and perpetual replication of floral art. The use of flowers for adornment, decoration, and artistic representation has played an integral part in the traditions, cultures, and connections of humanity over the centuries. Flowers enhance one’s feeling and impression. They connect people to the simplicity and sensitivity of nature. They drive emotion and passion. Evoke sadness and remembrance.

Floral design or floral arrangement is the skill of using plant materials or flowers to create eye-catching and harmonious composition, along with choosing whichever medium an artist may see fit. This aura of refined floristry can be traced all the way back to ancient Egyptian culture. This origination of artistic floristry has played a significant role in the interactions and relationships amongst humans over the course of history.

Page through the chapters of time and centuries past and you’ll find that flowers in contemporary art have retained the same symbolic value of life and beauty since the beginning of time. Few things carry such timeless symbolism and connection that flowers and artistic floristry deliver. A universal language for all and a powerful way to connect with people. A language of love, emotion, beauty, sadness and celebration that universally speaks to all. Flowers and floral art evoke such emotions within us. Love, passion, desire, innocence, joy, sadness or even death. They can represent a multitude of emotions and feelings. Likewise, it is a transferable and giftable language that can be spoken through canvas and florals mediums. Furthermore, a timeless one at that.

In conclusion, flowers are not just pretty decorations or gifts, but powerful sources of emotion and beauty. They have the ability to transform our lives, enhance our emotions, and connect us with each other and with nature. Whether as a depicted as a simple bouquet or a complex floral arrangement, flowers and floral art stand as a testament to the integrity and beauty of the natural world, and a reminder to appreciate and cherish the wonders that surround and connect us all.

The Nature in Ephemeral Art

Posted on: June 26th, 2018 by Art Leaders No Comments

As mentioned in our last post, “The Floral Still Life: It’s Stems and Roots”, the traditional still life focused on a moral lesson –perhaps the most frequently used motif being life’s temporality. Flowers as they exist in nature are an art in and of themsleves; Claude Monet even said “My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece”. But these tragic beauties only last a season. They bud; they bloom; they die –such is life.

Here are some contemporary artists who capitalize on the short-lived nature of real live flowers to produce exquisite ephemeral art. Be sure to add any of your favorites I may have missed below!

Wolfgang Laib –”Pollen from Hazelnut” at the MoMA (2013):

This artist literally gathers pollen from trees and plants near his southern-German home, bottles it up, and takes it to museum’s all over the world to create dust-carpet installations on their floors. Part of me is impressed by his commitment, the other part wonders how the bees must feel…

Detroit Flower House – Lisa Waud and others:

Before a delapidated house in Detroit was demolished, florist – Lisa Waud – decided to give it one last hurrah by decking out the place in flowers. She partnered with local floral artists to make the various installations and the results were hauntingly beautiful.  The “Detroit Flower House” exhibit opened for one weekend in October 2015.
