About this book

"Ikebana" means living flowers. This literal meaning discloses a form of artistic expression in which the natural beauty of the flowers and blossoms unfolds in conversation with the artist's powerful formal language. Fundamental to the art form is a close and contemplative observation of the natural world, which in turn offers itself as a boundless source of inspiration. Minh Häusler studied the Japanese art of ikebana in Singapore and Hong Kong. Steeped in the art form's long and rich tradition, she has combined this tradition with her own unmistakable style. Today, she is a master of the modern Sogetsu School of Ikebana. The first book on this important artist, Minh Häusler: The Fusion of Flora and Art reproduces in sumptuous full-color more than two hundred photographs of Häusler's work. Carefully composed by the artist herself, the photographs are stunningly beautiful, the line and color of the flowers redolent with meaning against simple black or white settings. Häusler's lavish photographs together with texts that provide insight into the artist's process make this a book that will inspire anyone with an appreciation of this beautiful and timeless art. Häusler is a master of her craft, and Minh Häusler: The Fusion of Flora and Art reflects her at the height of her career.
