Real art, (as opposed to what is commonly referred to by retailers as ‘garden art’ — don’t ask me how I define the difference, because I don’t exactly know, I just know it when I see it) placed in the landscape is skill unto itself. This ‘Captured Zen’ garden by Bluegreen realizes various ways to put ‘real’ art in the garden.
Recognizing that nature itself is art (and framing it with a giant picture frame), as well as manipulating nature to create art (as in a modernist painting on the ground created with ajuga, moss and some yellow plant I have not yet identified) and then and then putting artistic sculpture in the garden (I really love the subtle touch of the elephants near the house and how the indoor art become part of the garden when the large doors are open), this garden design effortlessly and successfully incorporates all sorts of art.
