FORM bridges the gap between artists and floral designers

Ah… Spring is so close yet so far… but we get to dive into something really special before the wedding season starts.

For the last two years, we’ve been a part of something very near and dear to our hearts, FORM: Art + Floral, which bridges the gap of two artistic fields. FORM brings artists and florists together in a one day exhibition.

In 2014, we were selected to be part of an exhibit curated by Marcela Andrade and Jeremy Kresusch, at Room 1520. It was so interesting seeing Room 1520, being an awesome wedding venue, showcased as an exhibit hall. It really highlighted the beauty of the venue and the artwork! The inspiration led us to recreate a piece that was translated by birds of paradise, roses, and delphinium. With the fluid lines, and cool colors, we were really drawn to blending neutrals with bold colors.

Last year, FORM partnered up with the non-for-profit organization Snow City Arts in order to raise money for the education of arts to children who are hospitalized in the Chicagoland area.  The event was held at Chez-Chicago. This contemporary loft space, with it’s architectural staircase, tall ceilings, and natural light, was such an ideal exhibition space! We recreated a handmade book with exaggerated details, including dried hydrangea that represented paper and velvety red roses, inspired by the handmade red yarn. The movement of this piece, with exaggerated pages, and floral spilling over onto the next piece… just a way to translate the story of the artist’s work. To some, it’s just a book, with simple words strung through with yarn. I interpreted this, as the exaggerated elements of our lives. The textured paper we call life, and the direction we choose and guide for ourselves, which are the words on our paper. Live life with purpose. Be kind and share your love. Allow your life to paint your story.
