Planting and Maintaining a perennial garden
an ongoing exploration of materials and mark-making
Planting and Maintaining a Perennial Garden is an ongoing series
that reuses one set of cedar wood panels over many spaces.
Based on the 1930’s New Bauhaus wood paneling of the South Side Community Art Center’s(SSCAC) Margaret Burroughs Gallery, these wood panels are physical records of the history of their spaces.
Sometimes installed as walls, tables, chairs, or floors, the history of the space is visible in the wear, texture, and character of the cedar panels.
