“The past is a foreign country,” author L.P. Hartley famously wrote in his book The Go-Between. Perhaps that’s why we hold on to the postcards…
Spring is just around the bend and Laura Andrews’ Oshibana Art LA pop up installation budded in Topanga Canyon last week. Lauren Andrews is an oshibana artist; the centuries old practice of arranging dry pressed flowers and other botanicals into a work of art. Often these dried flowers are painted.
The Open Air Gallery is not a permanent installation but rather a pop up gallery, supporting artists in the canyon who prior to the pandemic had more opportunities to showcase their work outside of the brick-and-mortar gallery, at art fairs and events.
