Kyoto local creators from various art fields exhibit their collaboration artworks at “RAKUCHU” art exhibition. It is aimed to introduce the profundity of Japanese art culture to the world from Kyoto. Every year this exhibition exposes amazing artwork from artists, and this year one in particular that caught our eye was the art piece by Takahiro Matsuo.
He is the designer behind LUCENT, a unique garden with sparkling floating flowers. The art piece is titled Transparent Flowers, and it’s made of steel wires and prisms blooming along with a garden at the entrance of the temple.
The flowers that he used for his piece can be found in the Sennin No Niwa Garden which was designed by modern Japanese landscape architect and Japanese garden historian Mirei Shigemori.
The concept of his work it’s to retain the spirit of modernism and abstract expression while bringing a new rhythm of light to the garden’s still ambiance.
