About this listing

Artist: herman de vries (all lowercase by own request)

An enclosed garden has traditionally been a place that excludes wild nature. This creates a kind of outdoor room. Within the fence, the original landscape is cultivated and transformed into an area controlled by humans. In herman de vries' Sanctuary, the roles are reversed. Here, nature can take its course. The outside world must be content with a glimpse through the gilded gate into a round earthen wall covered with a dense hedge of roses.
