In Bloom: Celebration of Spring, Rebecca Louise Law

​Spring signals the season of new beginnings and what better way to reign in the sunshine than with fresh flowers galore? If you’re in the mood for blooms then we suggest heading over to St Christopher’s Place just off busy Oxford Circus, for a floral installation by artist Rebecca Louise Law. Specialising in large-scale, hanging flower installations, Rebecca has created her first ever outdoor installation suspended above the street and featuring Peony Roses and other fresh flowers cascading downwards.

With ‘the arrival of spring’ as her starting thought, Rebecca has created a colourful feast for the senses and a welcome dose of nature in a hectic shopping district. Running for a mere five days, this is Rebecca’s first piece of art that is exposed to the outside elements and designed to only last for a short period of time - the epitome of letting nature take its course. Rebecca has been quoted saying that she “loves bringing nature into an urban environment and challenging the way we look at flowers, re-evaluating the natural processes that they go through as they dry and slowly die”. We can’t help but be enamoured with Rebecca’s insight and the show-stopping appeal that such a beautiful variety of hanging flowers brings.

Starting her career rather organically back in 2011, Rebecca got her big break after the Head of Communications at Hermes typed the word ‘floral artist’ into Google. She was after someone to produce floral artwork for the brand’s event at the Royal Opera House, and it turned out Rebecca was just the ticket. Since then the artist has produced work for the likes of Jo Malone and Dolce & Gabbana, as well as an installation of 10,000 bulbs for the Chelsea Flower Show. With an aptly located studio on Columbia Road, we can imagine Rebecca lives and breathes all things floral, and it definitely shows in the end result.

With Spring finally in our sights and new blooms (and beginnings) on our mind, we’ll definitely be checking out Rebecca’s display for a welcome dose of peace and a reminder of nature’s simple beauty - particularly important amongst the city’s hustle and bustle.

Rebecca Louise Law’s Celebration of Spring is on display now until 21st March in St Christopher’s Place, London.
