At the heart of the Minimalist aesthetic is the reduction of form to its pure, simplified state. Through the selective process of removing all unnecessary elements, the focus is concentrated on the innate characteristics of the object itself.

This simplicity facilitates an unhindered interaction between the object and its surroundings. Minimalism has greatly drawn upon elements of the Zen aesthetic and the values of simplicity, tranquility and open space will be represented in our next group show.

IKEBANA

Ikebana as an art form is a way of unifying elements of our surroundings, celebrating an interaction between the outside and inside world whilst making us consider the way we choose to experience our surroundings.

The simplified, uncomplicated beauty that finds form in Ikebana is designed to prompt reflection on the transitory, ephemeral qualities of the natural world. MADE / ARRANGED will encourage us to think about beginnings and endings, moments which celebrate uncertainty. This sentiment is captured in the haiku by poet and great master Matsuo Bashō.

Ikebana florist Setsuko Yanagisawa from Yuga flora will respond to the artists works with Ikebana arrangements.
