Furawāāto (Flower Art)
Next Occurrence: Saturday, 23rd September 2023
10:00am to 4:00pm
Inspired by the Japanese ancient art form ‘Oshibana’ where pressed flowers and other botanical materials are used to create an entire picture to make beautiful art, comes this new abstract floral series Furawāāto by artist Natalie Briney.
In this abstract series Natalie has focused on capturing the feeling and textures of dried and flattened flowers and more particularly the Pansy, Daisy and Anemones.
Using various modern textures and techniques, including spray paint, stencils, paper, modelling and crackle paste all of which create a visually and tactilely exquisite, finished piece of art, Natalie is giving new life to this ancient art form.
However, much like ‘Oshibana,’ her work is best seen up close and personal to really capture the true essence and feeling of the dried flowers.
Come and visit Natalie and her work when she has her ‘pop up’ studio at the Margaret River HEART – Nala Bardip Mia during the Margaret River Region Open Studios from Saturday 9 September to Sunday 24 September 2023.
