December 3, 2020, ZEXPRWIRE, Published on November 9th this year, Diamond Dust (Poems from the Black Sea) is the latest release authored by Anca Ioviţă.
Diamond Dust (Poems from the Black Sea) is a series of 5 volumes and contains a collection of visual poems created in eye-catching patterns in a new style of Ikebana (the traditional art of flower arrangement from Japan), called “marine Ikebana” by the author. The result is a unique display of emotion with the right balance of nostalgia, the poems being spun around the impermanence witnessed by the author with a medical background.
“The scientific branch of medicine helps sustain life during emergencies, but the beauty of art makes those added moments of life worth living for.” stated the author in the introduction of the book series.
“I am an avid collector of seashells, an interest that started during childhood, but which only during the last 4 years found a home in the world of arts when I started creating Ikebana arrangements without living flowers, in a new style I call “marine Ikebana”. The seashells from my collection decorate the arrangements, with leaves, flowers and buds replaced by the former real estate of mollusks and my lyrical thoughts form the structure of the branches.” she further added when briefing about the books.
The nautical imagery and the aquatic words assembling this book series would be greatly appreciated by shell collectors with an appreciation for Ikebana and minimalist art in general.
A lifelong polymath whose vice is indulging in lifelong learning, the author Anca Ioviţă went from arts to humanities to engineering to medicine and is continually using all those experiences to bring to life new books and other creative projects as well as constantly trying out new career fields. She has several other books to her credit.
The 5-volume photo book series is available in print as hardcover only. Visit https://minimalistdesigner.com/diamond-dust-poems-from-the-black-sea/ for more information. Buy it from https://www.blurb.com/user/ancaiovita.
