Meet local author and floral artist, Lindsey Taylor, in celebration of her new book, ART IN FLOWER (Monacelli)
With ART IN FLOWER, Lindsey Taylor introduces an original take on floral design that teaches us to see the world anew
Based on Taylor’s popular Wall Street Journal column ‘Flower School,’ on its surface this book demonstrates how Taylor creates stunning but achievable floral arrangements inspired by works of art. Riffing on works by a diversity of artists across mediums, periods, and styles, including Alice Neel, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julie Mehretu, Sheila Hicks, Willem de Kooning, Georgia O’Keeffe, Frank Stella, Salman Toor, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Kerry James Marshall, among others, Taylor inspires readers to interpret the palettes, compositions, brushstrokes, and mood of the art in flowers, and shares florists’ trade secrets for building beautiful arrangements. Through this meditative practice of looking intently at art and nature, readers learn, in the words of David Hockney, ‘to really look,’ and to really see the world.
