i was asked to design a floral arrangement, using Gustav Klimt's painting, The Kiss, as inspiration.

and so i did.

{CocoRosie florals featured in the july issue of Brides}

Klimt was 45 when he painted The Kiss, still living with his mother and two unmarried sisters.

off for a few days to hear the sounds of silence. i leave you with a lil sufjan lullaby.

enjoy the holiday ~ xx

Tomber amoureux. To fall in love. Does it occur suddenly or gradually? If gradually, when is the moment “already”? I would fall in love with a monkey made of rags. With a plywood squirrel. With a botanical atlas. With an oriole. With a ferret. With a marten in a picture. With the forest one sees to the right when riding in a cart to Jaszuny. With a poem by a little-known poet. With human beings whose names still move me. And always the object of love was enveloped in erotic fantasy or was submitted, as in Stendhal, to a “cristallisation,” so it is frightful to think of that object as it was, naked among the naked things, and of the fairy tales about it one invents. Yes, I was often in love with something or someone. Yet falling in love is not the same as being able to love. That is something different.
