Thursday Salute to Originals: Artemis Blooming
Iconic Floral Patterns Come to Life in a Three-Dimensional Bouquet.
Sculptors Julie Wilkinson and Joyanne Horscroft collaborate across London and Oslo to bring House of Hackney’s signature design motif alive in a new way through an expressive, three-dimensional series titled “Artemis.”
House of Hackney’s work is renowned for rich, dark color tones with moods of luxury and refinement. Paying careful attention to the details used to construct the dark emotion, Wilkinson and Horscroft spent two weeks painstakingly interpreting the wallpaper graphics into digital renders.
The resulting sculptures are bold expressions of wallpaper bouquets that highlight the originals’ intricate details through diverse paper textures and perfectly-matched coloring.
“To us, each flower head is its own microcosm, with its own set of rules and expression, yet it’s clear they belong in the same universe. They feel like planets in a solar system or different chocolates in a box—and there’s something really appealing about that! Different… but the same,” said Horscroft in an interview with This is Colossal.
This Thursday, we’re saluting the paper sculptures of Julie Wilkinson and Joyanne Horscroft and their detailed exploration of classical floral patterns. You can view more of their work on Instagram produced by their joint collaborative, Makerie Studio.
