Today I managed to get my hands on my first florals in months. I didn't quite find them as I normally like to — creeping around outside, trimming neatly and collecting — rather I snagged them from the church I work at. They would've been thrown in the garbage anyways, so it was okay ;)
Basically what this means is in the next few days (or week. or two), you'll see a mini version of my thesis because it's been far too long! I have a basket full of poinsettia leaves and this lovely bouquet full of muted purples greens, and a ceiling corner in my apartment that needs to be filled with dried suspended blooms.
In the meantime, I'm sure you remember my thesis work involving all sorts of foraged nature bits, bugs and bones. Here's a video to refresh your memory! Scroll further to see work by one of my faaavorite contemporary sculptors.
Rebecca Louise Law remains one of my most significant artistic influences (for reasons you may guess from the photos below) — imagine how thrilled I was to discover her work after I'd started my thesis work because our philosophies and processes weave such interesting connections. Here are some of my favorite works that she (and a big ol' team of volunteers — lucky her) installed in the last year!
