Nourishment is necessary for survival, but where is the boundary between food and gluttony? When it stops being a thing to become another? The limit is very easy to overcome, it is very difficult to control the reptilian brain.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Wonderful website and user friendly gallery space. Excellent help and such a warm, welcoming and dedicated team. The sculpture, Mother and Child, by Perryn Butler, arrived on time and made a lovely present. Thank you Artparks.
