Shinichi Maruyama. Gardens

I haven’t felt very inspired to blog lately, but these images from Japanese artist Shinichi Maruyama has changed all that. His latest exhibition Gardens, at Manhattan’s Bruce Silverstein Gallery, captures beautifully sculptural forms of floating tempera paint, water and sumi calligraphy ink in midair.

“It is said that a Zen garden represents in a three dimensional space the spirits of high priests who have achieved enlightenment. The Zen garden is the expression of boundless cosmic beauty in a physical environment, created through intense human concentration, labor and repeated action.” Shinichi Maruyama
