Too Much, Not Enough is the latest body of work from painter Laura Jones, and we are seriously swooning over these potent floral arrangements. The artist is an ex-florist, and her love and knowledge of the botanical world shines through in these rich and atmospheric works.
In this collection, Laura explores the limitations and connotations of flowers in still life paintings. She examines the role of the flower ‘in relation to the the domain of the domestic, the everyday, the hyper-feminine and the sentimental’. Laura plays with the conventions of still life paintings by excluding commonly used motifs of the vase, table or room – but maintains the visual language of decadent floral arrangements
With titles including Never a Wallflower, Dance Too Much and Full Credit to the Boys, Laura’s works are both poetic and subtly playful. Laura is a beloved favourite of The Design Files, and you can read up on our previous interviews with the stunning artist. But move quickly, unsurprisingly. Too Much, Not Enough is selling out at light-speed.
These blossoming beauties are neither ‘too much’ or ‘not enough’ – but in the words of Goldilocks – we think Laura’s incredible paintings are just right!
