Bring the outside in...
You may have noticed this week’s New Arrival as the image featured on the invitation for our 2013 Home Garden Sale. It’s a serigraph depicting a lush Japanese garden seen from a Zen scholar’s studio. On the invitation we added our Selfless Buddha for the sake of the sale, but the original print illustrates a scene featuring no artwork. It is rich and minimal at the same time. The artist, Hideaki Kato, comes from Kyoto, a city famous for its art and artists. Kyoto artists are known for depicting a Japan that is lush, engaging, and spiritual. It is the precise feeling conveyed by this print, yet it conveys something more. Look closely; step into the scene. Smell the air, touch the blossoms, and discern how the architecture integrates with the outdoors. This print lets us know all gardens, large or small, indoors or out, while they may be worlds unto themselves, are as much a product of our minds as the earth.
