Celebrating Nature's Art
"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment.
I want to give that world to someone else." (Georgia O'Keefe)
Who can look at a flower and not be drawn into the beauty of the universe,
a special sense of surrender?
With The Love of Flowers
we offer you the special world of flowers as seen by 40 different artists. Each one is a unique perspective on the meaning of this special form of beauty. Each one is a special gift - a personal journey into a world that has somehow lost its prominence in our common consciousness or zeitgeist. The Love of Flowers
is an acknowledgement of some special talents and clearly an attempt to push back and proclaim the tremendous value of this art in all our lives.
The Love of Flowers
is a special collectors' edition of contemporary art that recaptures the beauty of flowers. Once a dominant theme in the history of art, - the centrepiece of works by Luc Tuyman, Matisse, and Van Gogh, - the celebration of flowers in art and their power to inspire and move us has somehow been overshadowed by other themes. Yet in our daily lives these creations of nature are still the center-piece of our very special moments: happy birthday, congratulations, thank you, I love you, thinking of you - whatever the message, flowers have a unique and special power to put a smile on our face and touch those we care about, those we love in immeasurable ways.
It started with my own personal journey, the memories of my mother, her joy when we shared moments over flowers, but it soon gathered momentum as I explored the importance of flowers to others and other artists joined me in sharing their stories and their art. It became a journey that made me aware that we cannot lose the importance of this beauty and we need to celebrate it more. So The Love of Flowers
is my report card on that journey - one which I hope you will cherish as much as all of us who have told our stories.
Our wish is that you will see this book as a very special way to send your thoughtful and deep regards to deserving friends and loved ones.
The ARABELLA hard-cover collector's book of over 450 pages is filled with breathtaking and fragrant beauty. It's a once in lifetime experience; give a gift of flowers that will last forever and always be remembered.
