Sculpture Matrix

Sculpture Matrix is an experiment in the contradiction between nature and humans. It is intended to provide a canvas on which individuals can explore the relationship between the human mind and landscape. It demonstrates the tendency of humans to categorise and compartmentalise to aid appreciation. It is a multi faceted space where mans desire for control and fear of the unclassified results in imposing a grid of uniformity on nature, who?s own energy and boisterous freedom shows scant regard for such intellectualism. Above all, the garden is a celebration of the intrinsic beauty of the individual natural components.

He is also a lecturer in Horticulture, author, and landscape architect. ?It?s all a far cry from my days as a four year old sowing a few seeds for my mum and marvelling at their growth. The audience has changed but the excitement and enjoyment for me remains constant.?
