Valerie Wolf is a conceptual installation artist and owner of Davy Gray, a floral design studio rooted in East Austin Texas. Born from a deep-seated love of nature, travel and art, Valerie's professional creative practice blossomed from humble beginnings in 2013 to a highly regarded design studio in 2020 devoted to conceptualizing and producing unique custom floral creations for large-scale events and commissions. As an artist and innovator, Valerie continues to experiment with natural materials as a creative medium. She began installing semi-permanent dried floral sculptures in 2018 in an effort to preserve and encapsulate the ephemeral essence of her work, and to showcase the beauty of nature in all stages of life and the afterlife. Notable achievements include published works in The New York Times, Interior Design Magazine, Martha Stewart, The Knot, Southern Weddings Magazine and most recently is the recipient of an AIA Divine Detail Award for a commissioned installation piece in Houston.
Valerie invites you to experience the newest addition to a growing body of illusory and gravity-defying installation work. This year in an outdoor, safe and socially distant space. Her ephemeral dried and suspended flower sculptures continue to explore contrasting themes of life and death, preservation and destruction, the natural and the unnatural. Seeking to bring awareness to the most pressing issue we face as a society today - climate change - this piece is intended to ignite curiosity about our natural surroundings and inspire a sense of wonderment for art lovers of all ages. Guests are encouraged to move about the piece to experience each evolving angle. Don't forget to loop UP!
