‘Cool!”, ‘Beautiful!,’ ‘Amazing!’: bonsai have universal appeal, as evidenced by these common, cross-cultural, post-viewing reactions. But why? What makes them so beautiful? What exactly makes a bonsai, a bonsai?
Through Pacific Bonsai Museum’s 2018 exhibition, Living Art of Bonsai: Elements of Design, visitors will be able to analyze bonsai trees and describe what they see. The exhibit will break down major design elements of bonsai art--line, shape, form, space, color, and texture--exploring each element in detail. It will demonstrate, with trees from Pacific Bonsai Museum’s collection, how these design elements are used in bonsai.
