Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is a unique creative discipline that brings together nature and humanity. Like any other art forms, Ikebana has its own primal materials: living branches, leaves, grasses, and blossoms. Its heart is the beauty resulting from color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the meaning latent in the total form of the arrangement. Ikebana is about stories and feelings, expressed through flowers.
Photographer Lisa Raio has chosen flowers to express her creative vision. The artist pays homage to the fragility and delicate elegance of women embodied by flowers. Lisa reinterprets the classic still-life paintings through a minimalist photography, filled with quiteness and nostalgia.
Ikebana a creates out of nature a kind of beauty that cannot be found in nature.
