Lauren Fensterstock explores the paradoxical themes of “natural” and “artificial” as represented in three horticultural traditions: the American lawn, the formal designs of eighteenth-century Europe, and the Japanese art of cultivating chrysanthemums. Creating three distinct gardens using ornately quilled, cut, and sculpted black paper, Fensterstock has cultivated highly crafted, delicate installations that embody the inherent contradiction of all gardens.
