Susan Barton Tait: A Garden for Contemplation

September 26 - October 22, 1986

Susan Barton Tait's garden consists of wildly growing grass and plants which vie for position with the aggressively multiplying fungi, while rust from metal found objects and pigments from other societal wastes stain and bleed on the surface of the sawdust base from which the garden grows. Here and there are murky pools of solidified resin. Even the fountain in the middle tries its best to affect the 'ungardenness' of the garden." Grace Eiko Thomson
