Barbara Reiner is an award winning photographer and graphic designer presently focused on creating botanically inspired fine art photography. She also operated a unique floral design studio in New Haven, CT. Her present work explores digital montage to achieve the construction of an imagined “natural floral landscape” inspired by the aesthetics of Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arrangement. Individual macro botanical photographic elements are showcased with intentional use of white space to evoke the radiating asymmetry of Kado, the way of flowers. Two elements were photographed on location at the New York Botanical Gardens: the central bubble abstract and juncus effusus, a wetland perennial. Additional elements including iris, hyacinth, bird of paradise and asparagus were photographed at the artist's studio in New Haven, CT. The autumnal ginkgo leaves represent the only remaining species of a near extinct classification. The Cymbidium Orchid in blossom and spray form has served as a botanical muse throughout the artist's career.
