|"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.
