If, like me, you love flowers and are looking for something a bit different to do this Valentine’s Day, head to the Garden Museum in Lambeth which has just kicked off its Floriculture: Flowers, Love & Money exhibition with a spectacular installation called ‘Roses’ by floral artist Rebecca Louise Law.
A Fine Art trained floral artist whose love of flowers inspires her installations and commissions, Rebecca has created this latest work from more than 3,000 blooms, hand wired and suspended on copper in the nave of the Garden Museum’s historic building.
I intend to visit the exhibition next week, which explores the history of cut flowers as well as their inspiration to painters and the art of floristry, plus their symbolism in rites of passage such as marriage, funerals and memory. I think it will be a great complement to my studies and provide a fascinating insight in to the industry I hope to soon join. Plus hopefully I’ll get to see lots of pretty flowers too!
