The things they create at MR Studio London are an extension of ideas that relate to their work as artists over the years and have naturally developed out of their current home and surroundings in London. Their work now generally comes from closely watching and interacting with nature as it subtly changes and grows in the area around their home. Selecting and rearranging elements of flowers/foliage that they find, playing with scale and combinations, the work they create becomes a documentation of place and time as well as a poetic way to work with the landscape. They love especially to find inspiration or materials in unexpected cracks and corners- like flowers growing out of crumbling walls or bits of the forest creeping into neglected alleyways. It feels really rewarding to turn something that would be mostly overlooked into something beautiful that can be kept and cherished.
This is a one-off artwork made using a single pressed tulip stem that was homegrown in our little garden in London & carefully picked & pressed by us.
Part of a series called Untitled Haze. These works are made by encapsulating pressed plant material between sheets of very thin & translucent paper. This series has been developed to exaggerate the fragility & lightness of the materials we work with.
Please note as these artworks are made using real flowers the colours will gradually fade. We believe that’s the beauty of using real plants. Hope you’ll enjoy this process as much as we do 🙂
