I was thrilled when leading floral breeder, Dümmen Orange asked me to participate in the Columbus Museum of Art’s ‘Art In Bloom’ event, celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Beaux Arts Auxiliary and the arrival of Spring! The Museum’s permanent collection of paintings and artwork served as muse and motivation for incredible floral designs created by some of the premier mega-star designers in the floral world today.
For this event, I was fortunate enough to be assisted by Scott Robertson of Stem Fleur in Cleveland who previously worked with me at L’Olivier in NYC. Influenced by the colors and shape of the floating art piece hanging from the Atrium’s ceiling above the entrance of the museum, our freestanding sculpture was a textural treat for the eyes! Layers upon layers of rainbow Spring flowers undulated and rippled down the sculpture, appearing to spill into the basin. We wanted the installation to emulate the rolling hills of the Ohio countryside and become a living floral portrait.
Here are a few images of the installation from process to finished product. Enjoy!
