Tage Andersen's wondrous world.
As a flower artist, Tage Andersen is unique. He has an unprecedented creative spririt and has, in
only a few years, become famous in several countries. To enter into his world, is like entering into a
new universe infused with magic and adventure. From the very first moment the mind and senses
are enchanted by his fascinating floral world, and drawn into a flow of experiences of seldom seen
beauty. “As an artist that uses flowers and plants to tell his stories he is grand and unique in his
creations”, says one international critic.
Tage Andersen II
Interiors, flower art and exteriors.
Available in a new edition in both Danish and English.
This account of an artist's work is told with photographs and accompanying text. An artist that lives
in close proximity with all that he does. Some of the art works and objects presented in the books
have been made on commission, others are created for exhibitions in and outside of Denmark or to
be displayed at Ny Adelgade, where the permanent Copenhagen exhibit is housed. The House
functions as a gallery, museum or boutique depending on what you come here to find.
There are moments when one wishes the whole menagerie moved to more open spaces where the
horizon is farther away.
One can only hope that the joy of creation never ceases and that the possibilities continue to be
endless. Luckily, every day, all the time, there is something new to be found and an innate ability to
see the great within all things small, help along the way.
Here, Tage Andersen tells about his naïve joy of working with flowers.
“Bouquets in a fruitful period” is the title of the book and what I have sought to develop is the
fruitfulness, from a sober and perhaps at times almost ascetic simplicity. This is not always the most
easy of processes, it must be constantly mastered so that the vulgar and common can be avoided.
For a long time, when one is working with the same materials, albeit with the renewal that the world
and our Lord will offer, it is necessary, unless of course it happens subliminally, to divide ones life
and doings into different periods. In the art world, for example, one speaks of a red or a blue period.
Within floral art one might therefore speak of frugal or fruitful periods.
Flowers are an amazing means of expression with which to speak the unspoken. Hopefully, the
bouquets that Bent Rej have so beautifully rendered in these pictures, each speak a language of
their own. Some are meant to be tender and poetic, others powerful and dramatic. But they are all
created in a fruitful period with joy and love, both to life itself and to the flowers.
Tage Andersen's ”From Advent to Twelfth Night” is all about Christmas, how Tage Andersen
decorates for Christmas. Danish and English edition.
I believe that to feel anticipation or joy has become rare today. I, however, feel joy and anticipation
each morning to see what the day will hold for me. I look forward to each new season, the next new.
My life is, in effect, staged and is to a great extent about either/or.
I love contrasts, and often develop love-hate relationships to what I do. In truth, I loathe Christmas
decorating simply for the sake of decorating. To avoid this excess during the holidays I attempt to
incorporate the decorations into our everyday lives, thereby making them a part of our spiritual food
and a great joy for the beholder.
Using photographs as well as text, this book tells about the Camellia collection that two passionate
collectors, flower artist Tage Andersen and physician Hans Trautner has built together. It consists of
more than 200 varieties and is the largest in Scandinavia.
Parts of this collection has been exhibited at, to name a few, Gisselfeld castle and the Royal
Horticultural Society's garden in Denmark, as well as Sofiero Castle, the Garden Society in
Gothenburg and Norrviken's Gardens in Sweden. The book was published for the inauguration of
the aforementioned exhibit.
The book about Camellias is flower artist Tage Andersen's fifth book, and is the first where the
subject treats only one type of flower.
