British installation artist Rebecca Louise Law is someone who knows flowers! The daughter of a gardener, she grew up appreciating and respecting the life cycle of flora, knowing that nature is something that should be cherished and shared. She is a woman who is passionate about the simplicity and beauty of nature and she pours every bit of that passion into her art!
Using natural materials, mostly consisting of flowers, Rebecca creates incredibly detailed installations and sculptures that explore the relationship between nature and man, specifically our notions of beauty and decay. While the flowers in Rebecca’s installations will fade, while the petals will dry out and their fragrance will change, the pieces will remain untouched. This process of change is meant to celebrate the evolution of nature, forcing us to question our ideas about beauty.
Once you’ve seen Rebecca’s work, you’ll never look at flowers the same way again! Her installations are truly breathtaking. You can see more of her work on her website and on Instagram. She shares her inspirations below. Thanks, Rebecca! ~Erin
I really love listening to BBC Radio 6 and Shazam-ing new tunes. My most recent Shazam has been Bonobo’s Bambro Koyo Ganda (ft. Innov Gnawa).
I have been reading The Complete Works of the Brother’s Grimm. I have found them all the more fascinating reading them as an adult.
I have been working my way through the Oscar’s Best Picture winners. Most recently I’ve watched Moonlight. I find it fascinating to see what was chosen each year in relation to what was going on in the world.
