Residents of the Village of Primm, the eponymous seaside tourist town on which I base my series, love topiaries—and so do I. I love their trippy shapes. The way they stretch the mind and transform a landscape.
Welcome to my Topiary of the Month Collection
TOPIARY OF THE MONTH: May 2019
THE TOPIARY PARK IN COLUMBUS, OHIO (USA)
“The Topiary Park is a landscape of a painting of a landscape. … If an artist can paint a picture of a landscape—art mimicking nature—then why not a sculptor creating a landscape of a work of art—nature mimicking art?” —James T. Mason, sculptor and creator of the topiary interpretation of George Seurat’s famous painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grande Jatte.
TOPIARY OF THE MONTH: June 2019
LADEW GARDENS IN MONKTON, MARYLAND (USA)
Named one of the top five gardens in North America, I’m seriously in love with Maryland’s Ladew Topiary Gardens and plan to visit this summer and take lots of photos!
Top on my list when I visit Ladew? The Oval Library in the Manor House, a stroll along the nature walks and gardens (yup! I said stroll). I’m also super psyched to see what’s in store inside the Butterfly House. Artists in residence this summer at Ladew include painter Mike Bare and sculptor John Ruppert.
Join me next month as I build my collection of favorite topiaries.
In the meantime . . .
