  • FORAGING FOR TV

     

    I was recently asked by TV4 in Sweden to come and do a guest appearance on one of their most popular and oldest shows called Äntligen Hemma. Of course I accepted their offer! So while Ashley and Jessica kept things running at the studio, I jumped on a plane to Stockholm.

    Once there I was met by two of my former apprentices, Hanna Piippo and Emelie Wallstedt, who helped me set up the studio (which Emelie kindly let me borrow for the recording).

    Next I went out in to the woods to do some foraging and scored some fern, rose hip, oak branches and some stuff I don't even know the names of for the show. In Sweden it is legal to forage (responsibly of course!) so growing up there this came very natural to me.

    Then we were sent off to a very generous wholesaler, S-blommor, who basically let us raid their entire inventory and load up three carts of amazing blooms.

    Finally it was time to start shooting the show. Little did I know that I was going to do all the talking by myself (no host asking questions, what???). I think it turned out great in the end, much thanks to the super funny and talented crew at TV4 as well as a lot of help from my friends. Here it is if you feel like seeing me arrange some foraged foliage and flowers in a vintage sugar bowl using chicken wire as a base.

    It is in Swedish of course, but you should watch it anyways, because the language of flowers is universal after all...

  • AURORA

     

    I am still weak at the knees. Takashi Murakami(!), one of our times greatest living artists, contacted me (again!!!) to arrange flowers for MARK RYDEN's gallery opening! Nothing makes me more excited and NOTHING makes me freak out more than making a flower arrangement for an artist that I love and respect. Dubbed the god-father of pop surrealism, Ryden is also one of my all time favorite artists.

    So to the flowers for the gallery opening… after calming down a bit, and after some serious debating, we decided to use his painting Aurora as our inspiration. We love the colors (or perhaps the lack of colors depending on how you see it) and we love the contrast between light and dark in this piece. Hence the light flowers coming out of the dark foliage + soil = dirt which we used instead of a vase (well ok, we also put the dirt on a zink tray…). In addition, we foraged a few ingredients, such as various sized dried pods, to add extra texture… and also because we always love adding something weird to our arrangements.

    The stunning 9 foot painting Aurora is on view at the Paul Kasmin gallery from December 10, 2015 to January 23, 2016.

    The flowers are on view… below.
