The iconic red blossoms illustratively showcased loud and proud in this tantalising new Spring 2015 compositional release by Danielle O’Connor Akiyama are said to pictorially represent the maturity of being, and the prelude to fully realizing the profound union of another. Yet above all else, said to graphically highlight the bouquet of the family. Give or take a few, these are the words of O’Connor Akiyama, the much sought after and equally well-collected contemporary floral artisan we ourselves count amongst fans of.
‘Journey I’ forms one-third part of a mini-series within the collective ‘Shine’ portfolio which O’Connor Akiyama launched this season, and she goes on to reflect of ‘individuality’ and, perhaps unsurprisingly given the title of this particular piece, the ‘life journey’ we’re all on. Cutting through the red blossom though, and this emotionally uplifting, individually-signed hand embellished and glossed boxed canvas form and function is currently available to pre-order for those quick enough off the mark.
