Marianne Eriksen Scott-Hansen does not need to stress over her flowers wilting. She constructs huge arrangements of cells paper blooms including plenty of petals and also leaves in color-coordinated bunches. The Copenhagen-based musician informs Colossal that she does not track the papers or number of hours she invests in her large-scale tasks, liking to concentrate on developing instead than the real procedure of reducing as well as forming. Each item is crafted by hand as well as without patterns or design templates, making every flower, stem, and little bit of plant pollen distinct.
Much of Scott-Hansen’s work reflects her youth in the countryside, anchoring her style in nature and also Danish people art. Heavily rooted in craft, the artist says she functions both artistically as well as intuitively. “It’s done in the hands in a manner of speaking. I intend to participate in a discussion with the material. Job my method right into it. Checking out as opposed to ‘mere’ re-working as well as examination. (Seeing) just how far can you ‘stretch’ paper.” She takes pleasure in utilizing the same product to produce numerous appearances, contrasting resilient, harsh timber and also fragile flowers.
Second hand, effort, and industry are required also, in order for my art work to become something various other than the cells they were. Something should be small prior to it can be big, simple prior to it can be flashy– it is the comparison of nature that brings luxury within it and triggers our imagination. In my reworking, the cells paper origins of the triffid might also come to be that of the rose.
The musician graduated from The College of Design at The Royal Danish Academy of Great Arts in 1995 with a degree in style style. Because then, she’s worked together with a lengthy checklist of clients including Elle Denmark, Karl Lagerfeld, and Hermès, to call a few. Currently, she’s working on an installment for a worldwide summit intended in Copenhagen in May. See more of Scott-Hansen’s blooming jobs on Instagram. (via The Envious Manager)
