The concept of spending time, gazing and tending, is idle.  Rarely are we held captive in this way.  Our experience is layered and non-linear.  Interrupted. Park Square Gardens, Overgrowth is a response to the passive scenes of Ogata Gekko, suggesting that interference occurs in our encounter with the landscape. 

A dimension of multiplicity disrupts the manicured architectural space of the outer trellis, while the overgrowth swallowing the shed breaks its frame.  This installation nods to the often paneled, triptych form of Gekko’s work. 

The daylight pierces the garden, punctuating its shadows.
