There is something immensely satisfying to me about the balance of formal and informal, straight line and squiggle. In gardens such as Sissinghurst's I love the transition from hard architecture to the balance of shaped living containers of potential disorder to the 'wilder' growths. Of course the wilder are just as controlled as the formal hedging, but visually it gives me a thrill.
Recently I encountered that same thrill when I encountered the delicate balance in Nif Hodgson's work. Such beauty and calm, which entices this observer to drift into contemplation and meandering thoughts.
