In Minh Hausler's oeuvre art and nature come together to form an unusual symbiosis. The floral creations made by the photographer and master of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana mesmerise the viewer with their clear and simultaneously powerful formal language, which allows the natural beauty of the flowers and blossoms to fully unfold.
The literal meaning of the Japanese term "ikebana" is "living flowers". The observation of nature therefore also represents one of the fundamental artistic principles of the artist Minh Hausler, who is originally from Vietnam. This is the source of her inspiration, which she transforms into delicate and powerfully expressive arrangements. Minh Hausler learned the art of ikebana, which is steeped in tradition, in Asia before developing her own, unmistakable style in Europe. Nowadays she teaches all over the world and presents more than 200 selected pieces from her oeuvre for the first time in this publication. In doing so, she showcases the various levels and styles of this timeless art, which strives for perfect harmony.
