Shinichi Maruyama – Gardens

New York based, Japanese photographer/artist Shinichi Maruyama has released his latest series of work, Gardens.

Photographing paint, mid air in an attempt to replicate the aesthetic found in Zen gardens he has created a stunning series of pieces. Which while he humbly insists that he is “far” from the mark none the less manages to encapsule the true spirit of the aesthetic, that in many ways surpasses the original. At least in my opinion.

“I have tried to represent this feeling I get from Zen gardens in my artwork. Although I am still far from those enlightened monks who labor in nature, my actions of repeatedly throwing liquid into the air and photographing the resulting shapes and sculptural formations over and over-endlessly-could be considered a form of spiritual practice to find personal enlightenment.” – Shinichi Maruyama.

See the rest of the series here on Shinichi’s site. Or head to Bruce Silverstien NYC, tomorrow night at 6pm to see it in person.
