Philosophy of the garden

A series of prints taken from real objects; wood, stone, bamboo, cork, rubber, water.

These are intended to represent the elements of a Chinese Ming Dynasty Garden: water, wood, stone, reflection, constructed views and poetry.
The poetry points us towards time for thought and improvement.
Standing between earth and sky, of time passing, of the reflected moon.

A gift that needs us.

Never completed.

A site of contested meaning.

Peace, Freedom, Sparing, Preserving.

"When Visitors arrive, I point at the Cyprus with a smile."
