Ikebana- Sepia ink continuous line on soft hand pressed paper.
*scroll down for more imagery
Ikebana, is the traditional Japanese art form of flower arranging. Ikebana focuses not only on the flowers themselves but also the space between. Rikki uses this practise as a metaphor to accept that the spaces and times between our special moments in life are just as important as the moments themselves. A reminder that our day to day is to be lived just as presently as our holidays and celebrations.
The Significance of the Alchemy Series.
Nurturing, forms part of Rikki's series Alchemy. In a fast season of life, Rikki's quest for peace became a priority and she felt an intense need to slow, pause and recalibrate.
During the creation of the series, a memory of one of Rikki's most peaceful moments was regularly flooding back to her. 2007, as an exchange student in Japan, sitting on the banks of a perfectly still lake surrounded by mountains. That moment although 14 years ago, was unforgettably grounded, an awe filled moment of pure presence. Rikki's series is a creative documentation of her transition to integrating more of that feeling back into her every day. Heavily inspired by tranquility, quality, peacefulness and Japanese culture, this series has a presence of its own.
