Great article, Attila.

You've done a service to bonsai art with this one.

My compliments on the illustrations, too.

Kind regards,

Andy

Very good article Attila. I just feel to add a little to the subject, that I find interesting.
There are tree forms of bonsai display styles. They are named shin, gyo and so.
Shin is a very formal style, and in this case the scroll always is settled precisely in the centre of a Tokonoma.

Gyo is less formal and allows the scroll to be placed slightly off centre. This influences at the bonsai style and accents chosen, that also must be slightly informal in their style.

The free style called so lets the artist play around more freely with the elements. So allows the scroll to be placed much more off centre, and the usage of more artistic pots i.e. are also in the slipstream of the free form.

Furthermore, just to make it more complex, the different forms of display can be toned and mixed. And the interpretation of the chosen style can differ from the artists. The point to take is that one has to be open minded to the expressions of the whole composition.

The main focus is the feeling of the display. The untold and understated elements are the key to feel the display.

Hi Attila
Here are some examples. I have published an article at
www.shohin-europe.com with some extra text as well.

SHIN

GYO
Here the scroll is placed slightly off centre, and together with the figurine the less formal style (gyo) is expressed.

In this example, a mix between the formal (shin) and the less formal (gyo) style is used. The scroll is placed in the centre, but there is added a modern pot to the image, that
makes this set-up more informal in style.

Summer display by Hiroshi Takeyama. Display without scroll is also a common practise.
Especially when the mood and time of year easily is suggested by the bonsai and the accent.

Remember that the final expression and interpretation is related far more to feelings of the display than following rules.
Kind regards, Morten Albek

Great post, Morten! Thanks so much for presenting that here.

The photographs help a lot to solidify the concepts that you discussed in your previous comments.

Again, much appreciated!

Best regards,

Carl

Morten,

What I really like about your photos is that they show examples of how much variety can be achieved within these displays. There may be a misconception amongst us Westerners that those Japanese displays are very rigid and they all look the same.

As you've demonstrated here, there is much more room for creativity than we may assume.

Thank you,

Attila
