- Rebecca Louise Law has become renowned for her cut flower installations
- Galleries and fashion houses have commissioned her decaying artworks
(CNN)Death is a part of life: an uncomfortable aphorism if ever there was one.
However British artist Rebecca Louise Law has no qualms staring death in the face -- in fact, she makes it central to her work.
Known for vast installations of hanging cut flowers, Law has found admirers from gallery curators to fashion houses drawn to her decaying compositions.
She's hung her work at the Royal Academy in London and turned the Chelsea Flower show on its head with an upside down meadow. From Hermès boutiques to churches, there are few spaces Law's green fingers cannot reach.
The limitations of paint
The daughter of a gardener, Law is finding a different outlet for her love of nature. A classically trained artist, she started off painting flowers, abstract works inspired by the bold colors of Kandinsky and Rothko. But it wasn't enough, says Law.
