Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art
Features:Price: $7–$10; free first Friday
Historically, bamboo baskets were crafted as containers for ikebana, those Zen-inspired flower arrangements that reflect the changing season and inspired sensibility of their creators. Some pieces in this show of 17 featured artists keep that function in mind. They are feats of engineering as well as objects of meditation.
One functional ikebana basket, titled Warrior, is shaped like the sleeves and breastplate of a samurai’s armor. One abstract form represents the chaotic rush of fire, while another intricate wall-mounted sculpture reproduces the swooshing back of a lady’s braided hair knot.
