Edelman Arts presents a fragrant bouquet of ‘Electric Blossoms,” by Torkil Gudnason. The exhibit will be on view from September 11 - October 27 with an opening reception September 11, 6-10pm.
Torkil Gudnason has a successful commercial career behing him being a leader in beauty, fashion and still life photography. He has shot Maxstudio / Leon Max campaigns and his work has appeared in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, Surface and Allure.
His inspiration to work with flowers came from his childhood in Denmark, seeing long cold winters followed by spring filled with flowers and colors. “It felt like an explosion,” he remembers, “an enormous burst of energy.”
Torkil works with sophisticated studio lighting techniques with the flowers to “translate them into my fantasy world.” His extraordinay eye and incandescent imagination allow us to experiene the crazy power, sensuousness, energy and strength that flowers exert.
