San Francisco Bouquet de Art – More Photos

Recovered a few pictures taken from the San Francisco 2010 Bouquet de Art show– a phone update went awry and I lost these.  Apologies for the poor phone image quality.  I thought cameras weren’t allowed, so I didn’t bring  my camera that day.  For other pictures of the show, visit: http://floraphilia.net/?p=294 and here:  http://floraphilia.net/?p=306.

Tucked away in a very dark gallery, this dramatic design vibrated with movement and color.  It was an expansive 3-foot wide, exuberant design for a dim, subdued chamber.  I think perhaps the vessel was the art piece.

If I recall correctly, the musician’s coat was made from layers of hand dyed-painted fabric.   Some designers took a more interpretive, complementary approach, while others took a literal approach in which they painted with flowers.

Interesting interpretation of the dark painting in background, but I didn’t care for the fact that from behind, colored pins were visible, sloppily placed; the piece seemed rushed, unfinished.  It’s a work-in-the-round, did the designers not think we wouldn’t view it from all sides?

Nice abstraction of the painting.  Several designers had used an unfinished grid in the form of a wave.

This piece, with lots of air and asymmetrical mass, is balanced in a very natural way. You don’t feel it’s contrived.  Also-nice textures and color restraint.

Inventive block forms!  Red floral tape creates an interesting line and color element that incorporates the block platform into the design.

Here you can see the sculpture correlate, the human scale, and the red line.  Love these kind of minimalist constructions.  Perfect complement for the sculpture.
