Simple, thoughtful artI firmly believe that every well-designed garden should contain at least one piece of quality art. In the contemporary Zen garden, simpler is better. Avoid vivid hues and complex shapes — the tranquil spirit of your garden is at stake. Instead, choose simple pieces with organic shapes and colours that create a dialogue with other garden features. This simple wind sculpture by Lyman Whitaker has the organic shape of a lotus flower while repeating the essential hues of surrounding plants. It moves in the breeze, bringing another layer of interest to the venue.This tiny garden is like an art gallery

Organic shapes contain leaves..Organic shapes are often found in nature, but man-made shapes can also imitate organic forms. Organic Shapes might or might not have leaves. Organic Shapes have irregular edges.

2. Natural form. Man-made works inspired by, say, the symmetrical wings of a butterfly or the vein pattern on a leaf look perfectly in keeping with a natural landscape. This weathered metal sculpture of an upturned blossom seems almost like an oversize waterlily floating above the shrubbery. Viewed from a distance, such sculptures could prompt a second look to see if the pieces are man-made or natural.
