"La Taille japonaise,
Le Zen au jardin"
by Frédérique Dumas
Frédérique Dumas proposes us in this beautiful work an authentic glance on this Japanese ancestral art.
Returning regularly in Japan to work with maitres gardeners, she draws from the sources of the Zen inspiration which is based on the harmony between man and Nature. She describes the various styles of pruning, the species adapted to each, as well as the energy principles which are in the heart of this approach. The research for an aesthetics made of simplicity, restraint, becomes as a lifestyle which sends back the artist to himself
 and to his (her) internal life.
