Hermès and Chanel are vying for cooperation, giant immortal flowers like "thousand-layer cakes"

"In spring, flowers take over the sky. There is no need for butterflies anymore. Every flower has soft wings." This is Gu Cheng's modern poem. He warmly praised the blooming flowers in spring. Flowers are the most extreme aesthetics in nature. From ancient times to the present, there is no religion or civilization that does not like flowers. However, although flowers are beautiful, they cannot avoid withering. Such beauty has a time limit. In order to break through such a time limit, Danish artist Marianne Eriksen re-engraved flowers with paper, so that each flower can bloom with eternal beauty. Marianne Eriksen creates flowers that never die. She designed a huge bouquet of tissue paper flowers with countless petals and leaves, colour-coordinated and lifelike. The Copenhagen-based artist says she doesn't know how many sheets or hours she spent creating the giant flower, but she prefers to focus on the creation rather than the actual cutting and shaping process. Incorporating memories of her childhood countryside as well as Danish folk art, each bouquet she creates is handcrafted without patterns or stencils, and each petal, stem and pollen is unique. 01 Bouquets rooted in homeland and memories Much of Marianne Eriksen's work reflects her childhood in the countryside, anchoring her style in nature and Danish folk art. The artist is deeply rooted in craft creation, and her work is both artistic and intuitive. Marianne transforms paper into giant, multi-colored, multi-layered shapes that simulate flowers, organic plants, and other bizarre creatures. While combining the styles of modern simplicity and exaggeration, she also combines traditional Danish folk culture with her creations, giving her works a national brand. For the past five years, everything in her work life has been about paper. Her work has also been recognized by many, and her large flowers are used in the windows of the Royal Palace in Copenhagen. Fashion and beauty shops in Milan, Italy, also love her creations, combining them with their own in-store merchandise. However, in order to avoid the over-commodification of her work, she had to turn down many opportunities. 02The vitality in paper The author has created a "paper fashion", which features flowers made of tissue paper that are larger than human life. The author has a special pursuit for creative materials, she said: "She wants to be with the material. Have a conversation.” These thin layers of color are collected and trimmed to form petals and leaves that, while solid, have an ethereal feel that’s like a fixture in a candy-hued dream. To achieve this vibrant creation, she eschews stencils or measurements, relying on 3D freehand cutting and draping, finding inspiration in the manual work of cutting and folding materials. She is now able to transform standard printer paper, tissue paper and other plain paper into lush, dreamy artworks. Her paper carving studio is so full of paper that wherever you look, you can see her creations from paper: roses, leaves, large masks and a network of plant roots growing from the ceiling. She said: "Just like you need food in your belly and clothes on your body, I think you need beauty too. Not necessarily a streamlined minimalist beauty, but a beauty that doesn't require any preconditions, no matter the context It looks beautiful no matter how old you are." 03 Big-name collaborations came in succession In 2014, she created a huge hand-cut paper-cut background for the ELLE Style Awards in Denmark, and since then, she has changed her creative direction and started working with the fashion industry. Combine. To reach the widest possible audience, she prefers public domain to museum exhibitions, and has exhibited her paper sculptures in shops and windows from Copenhagen to Sydney. Clients who have contributed cooperative olive branches include: Karl Lagerfeld, Fendi, Elie Saab, Elie Danmark, Fiskar, Gane, Georg Janssen, Hermes, L'Oreal, MAC Cosmetics, A series of international big names such as Max Factor. Designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Viktor Rolf have used her flowers, and she has held exhibitions at Voergaard Castle, Homo Faber, Best of Europe, the Michelangelo Foundation in Venice, Italy, and more. The popularity of the work lies in the rigor of creation, she doesn't sketch before making paper sculptures, but she has an inner understanding of what her work should look like. Before creating pieces for clients, she interviews clients about their needs and may travel to see where the finished paper engravings will be hung so she can match the colors to the environment in which they are displayed. Chinese people often advocate that small is beautiful and modesty is the backbone, and they are less able to accept exaggerated aesthetics. But some things have to be big and small, first flashy and then modest. It is the diversity of nature that allows such exaggerated aesthetics to coexist with minimalist aesthetics, inspiring our imagination with inclusiveness. The beauty of giant flowers and tiny clovers do not conflict, they are both gifts from nature. Some pictures in this article come from the Internet.
