Throughout his entire career as a floral artist, Tage Andersen has demonstrated a unique twist to his talent: the ability to occupy an open space. He has done so over a series of spectacular exhibitions, at castles and manor houses, in churches and at museums, at international garden fairs and world-renowned botanical gardens. It is a selection of these exhibitions, all endowed with the same magic and enchantment that have been brought together in this book. Full page color photographs on all but a few pages, along with the artist’s words, bring this magic directly to the reader in an incredibly sumptuous and generous offering of beauty and insight.

Peter Chang explores the relationship between art and science through his range of abstract, three- dimensional objects which can be adorned, narrate their own meaning, and embody concepts remote from their original function. As a sculptor, Chang’s pieces are primarily modern plastic jewelry, strange furniture, and creepy-crawly objects. “Object-making is a non-verbal attempt at balancing the intellect with the intuitive,” is how Chang explains his relationship to creativity.
