Elodie Blanchard creates intricate colorful rich bouquets made of small repurposed scraps of textiles, plastic bags, mylar balloons, and snack packaging that she layers and stitches together. These collages are all unique, at times realistic, and at times abstract, from small sizes to large patterns.

Blanchard is playing with the contrast between the ephemerality of floral arrangements often commemorating important events and the long lifecycle of the waste materials she uses. The inspiration for these collages is drawn from the pictures she takes on her daily walks in the Greenwood Cemetery of decaying bouquets and wedding bouquets found on the internet, the saddest and happiest moments in a human’s life.

Materials: Textiles, mylar balloons, thread. Circa 2021.

About The Artist

Elodie Blanchard is a Brooklyn-based artist and designer. Through material exploration, repurposing, and a near-meditative process of repetition, she transforms the discarded and the commonplace into fantastical objects and playful environments that give us permission to explore our ambiguous relationship to nature, to others, and to ourselves. Her universe is joyful and humorous.

In addition to her artist practice, she partners with companies to develop textiles collections and architects to create large-scale installations. Born in Grenoble, France, Blanchard studied sculpture at l’Ecole Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris, fashion at l’Ecole des Arts Appliqués Duperré. She established her design studio in 2005 and has since collaborated with numerous architects, designers, and brands to develop textile collections and large-scale works.
