The images in Last Garden were created in my mother’s beautiful garden during the last few weeks of her life. She was a dedicated gardener who gained immense pleasure from the many hours she spent working in the garden that she maintained for most of her life. The results were magnificent.

I started to make images in the garden using the plants, soil, water, sun and rain, initially with no clear plan about how to best produce and process the finished work. Eventually, I decided I needed to have a more intimate and physical connection with the prints, and to include a process that allowed the garden to directly influence the finished work. I painted on the prints with various media and buried them in the garden (some with fabrics from my mother’s house) for extended periods of time, allowing the place to mark the work in a very direct way.
