Garden Installations

 
 

Over the past nine years I have made temporary works on the land. The pieces evolve and change through the seasons.

“Mow,” started in 2007 uses the lawn mower as a sculptural tool.

“Leaf Parterre” uses lawn regeneration. Both use the parterre formal garden structure as a template.



At I-Park in East Haddam, Connecticut I was given the opportunity to make permanent garden installations that relate to the local environment.

Started in 2012, “Invasives - Topiary - Parterre”  uses four invasive species found within I-Park. The plantings are restricted by square cages.


“Hortus Conclusus - Enclosed Garden,” made at a residency  at I-Park in May/June 2014 consists of two installations - Enclosed Turf Garden and The Forbidden Garden


With an agreement made with I-Park these works will be maintained by me in perpetuity.
