Why Moss Art? The Beauty Behind the Moss
Moss art as an art form may not be traditional, but then again neither are we. For many of us, the appreciation of nature is innate – not something learned or taught, but rather organic and instinctive. Joy may be found when strolling through the park or when visiting a bountiful garden. It takes no effort to feel a sense of ease and wonder while looking upon a deep canyon filled with luscious trees, swaying in the wind.
Thus it is no surprise when we find many portrayals of nature in artwork. Beautifully developed photographs capture the sun setting on a picturesque landscape, and many paintings depict the natural world in all its wonder. So why use moss as a medium in our artwork?
WabiMoss understands the impact that nature brings to our man-centered world and strives to bring this power of nature indoors. Nature is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also meditative and peaceful for our minds and bodies. We chose a natural art form for these qualities, qualities that we believe are important to our lives. Our moss art is a green wall in the home – its three-dimensionality emerges from its wooden frame, as if a piece of a dense forest floor has been transplanted into the home or office – untouched and imperfect, yet harmonious and simple. Our moss art does not only depict, but it transports.
So why moss art? Because moss is both simple and versatile, both unique and beautiful. The moss embodies the idea of wabisabi, that that which may have characteristics of asperity, simplicity, or asymmetry can, too, hold great beauty. Our moss art can last for decades and requires no care, but brings a beautiful slice of nature to brighten an interior environment so that you can enjoy the benefits, aesthetic or meditative, of Mother Nature without stepping out of the door.
