Bouquets to Art at the de Young, San Francisco- Abstract

 Pieces of abstract art interpreted through floral design and the de Young proved to be some of the most interesting items at the Bouquets to Art Exhibit at the de Young. 
Sea star fern was the only vegetative item used in the piece above.  It is quite a literal interpretation of the piece of metal art. 
 I like the use of form, texture and color in these floral designs.  The color and floral used in the composition is somewhat stark and understated but flows with the art.
 Spiky, leggy greens were used in the piece above to create form and texture.
 Vibrant orange hues and blue create a striking, bold contrast of colors!  This one was my Mom's favorite from the day.
 This painting and complimentary arrangement of flowers had a soothing affect on me.  Tulips, flax, leucadendron, lotus pods, calla lilies and orchids were used in the design.

 I really like the literal interpretation of the painting through black sticks and white flowers in a white frame.  I think the design of this arrangement is beautiful and simplistic (even though it wasn't that simple).
 Vibrant primary colors in anemones, gerbera daisies, orchids, ranunculus and jasmine splashed color into the arrangement much like the color splashed on the canvas!

Which design is your favorite?
