It’s about getting out of your comfort zone into other ones. To open up to each other’s creativity, to reach the highest goal.

This was a collaboration between an Artist, a Floral Designer, and a Videographer to get out the greatest emotion when looking at this gorgeous Art. Wolfgang Kowalski, myself, and Pirat joined forces, and with these extraordinary Decofresh Red Roses: Orange Springs, Cafe Del Noir, Explorer, Red Lion, and Ever Red we made Living Art.

Love in Its Full Bloom Through Red Roses Surrounding Art

The Artist Wolfgang Kowalski created an amazing piece called ‚Ohinija‘ (óhiŋniyaŋ IPA [‘ohĩnijã] „ohinija“ ) which means ‘always, forever, endless‘ in a dialect of the Lakota Native Indian People. The idea is about love in its full bloom, perishability of the visible beauty but then the endurance of love that shows true beauteousness. It is a work on wood, a collage out of book sites with stencil cut, acryl, cutting and flaming the wood and flowers.

 

 

Giving the Art a Frame With Red Roses

He invited me to be a part of this event and give the art a flower-ish frame. And the Collaboration begins here. So the first step was a few months ago we met for a creative meeting, as the piece was already in its origin. We shaped an idea to combine the organic materials. The scheme was to confront the viewer with transitoriness. We decided upon Roses, as the rose stands for endless love and beauty. We wanted also to go with deep and intense red tones, to push it even more.

3 Parts of the Rose

We worked with three parts of the rose. First the ‘body‘. So we created a form out of rose stems. For this part, we chose a lot of movement so that they can flow with each other. In and around the art. The technic was to fix a few of them with wire, but most parts were woven around and in each other so that they can develop in the process. Then we put in the roots and connected them to the plant parts. The last one was the highlight, the roses. We had the chance to work with these amazing varieties of roses. We unfolded hundred of them and placed them in a natural way, in groups, but also in a random order, as they just opened up their pedals for this special day. Also, we took some dried ones, so we could have different stages of the rose from the beginning.

 

 

We Got To Look At Our Own Design

And the last and most interesting part, the part where we started to be the viewer. As the piece was finished, flowers and art were one. So it was all about letting something organic follow its nature. So we were like little kids, excited for what to happen, as we already knew what would happen. And for the next two days, the piece was moving, changing colors and form.

Transitory Art

The theme is about love and the action of togetherness. From this viewpoint the interesting part for me was the melting of art and flower, becoming one and becoming a process, a flow, where for a moment, I was not involved actively. An exciting experience that I am grateful to have been part of. Nevertheless, it is a transitory art that fascinates us again and again.

And of course, I would like to thank the rose trader Decofresh Roses, OZ export for the transport, my wholesaler Flora Salzburg. And of course Wolfgang Kowalski and Pirat for the collaboration.
