ARTIST PROFILE 02
Garden Designer, Plant & Spatial Designer Ono has been involved in gardens, landscapes, mountain restoration, plant scenography, and plant art. He designs plants based on the principles of nature, expressing the mythology and culture of the land, and interlinking the home, garden, town, and mountain to create a “place” where not only human beings but also other living creatures can coexist. In “Aonagi”, the entrance side represents the landscape of the Seto Inland Sea, while the garden on the opposite side is planted with trees that will be staying for another 500 years, even though they are in competition of space with each other. This garden is a “contrast between far and near” and also expresses the “contrast of time axis”.
