LECTURE OUTLINE:   The Art of the Japanese garden

Presented by - DR. KATHLEEN OLIVE Phd.  - Arts Society Lecturer

Expanses of raked white gravel. Iconic trees – pines, maples, gingko – carefully twisted and pruned into dynamic and sometimes torturous shapes. The soothing drip of water onto stone. The autumn light shining through richly coloured leaves. When you deconstruct them, the elements of a Japanese garden seem so simple that they’re almost banal, yet their combined effect is undeniably engaging and soothing. In this talk, Dr Kathleen Olive investigates the historic roots of Japanese garden design that, like much of the country’s art tradition, developed in isolation from European influence and thus preserves something quintessentially “Japanese”.

Dr Kathleen Olive holds a PhD in Italian Studies from the University of Sydney, taught history and Italian at the University of Sydney and UTS for a number of years, and is a national ADFAS lecturer. Her research on the Codex Rustici, the commonplace book of a 15th-century Goldsmith, was presented to Pope Francis as the official gift of the City of Florence in 2015.
