Garden of Living Growth
Artwork 1 Details :The idea came after a visit to the island of Fueotaventura. An absolutely deserted place. It struck me when driving inside the island that there were orange volcanoes all around, just earth and sky. The only things that caught my eye were the stones, symmetrically placed by someone along the road. They seemed to be a landmark or even an ornament on this uninhabited land. The occasional cottages were so well-kept, so much care had been taken in creating a garden, even if it was made of stones. It is an amazing desire to create around yourself wherever you are... The garden also as a metaphor for life and a model of knowledge: ““A model of knowledge: art, the library, gardens, the sky: that which you can see “right away", that which you have to learn, that which you cannot see because it is too far away and that which you have to wait for it to grow in order to see it.” (Francesca Alfano Miglietti)
