In collaboration with the highly respected MADEINBRITALY Art Gallery, and in celebration of London Craft Week, we are delighted that the renowned designer and paper artist Andrea Merendi has designed some unique paper flower compositions, arranged especially for us in some of our boutique containers and vases, and available for all to see at our Clifton Nurseries London site in Maida Vale.
Don't miss this chance to see these unique and genuinely beautiful works of art - set amongst the delights of Clifton London, our idyllic hidden garden oasis in Little Venice.
Located just a short stroll from Clifton Nurseries, the MADEINBRITALY gallery showcases contemporary applied arts from Italy and Great Britain. Their current exhibition is IN BLOSSOM - Still Lifes by Andrea Merendi - 3 - 31 May 2017.
Andrea Merendi (Faenza, Italy, 1961) is a renowned designer, stylist and paper artist who has combined his floral knowledge with a strong poetic streak to create bespoke paper flowers. For London Craft Week he has partnered up with MADEINBRITALY to conceive a site-specific installation of ad hoc created still life compositions in dialogue with the gallery space at MADEINBRITALY with additional installations at Clifton Nurseries London. Andrea Merendi is inspired by nature and uses this inspiration to create completely innovative elements: his flowers are not just copies of natural flowers, they're brand new objects with their own life, sharing with their natural counterparts the beauty and the crystalline perfection that only the transience of time can give.
We thank MADEINBRITALY and Andrea Merendi for the wonderful opportunity to showcase some of Andrea's masterpieces.
