Sculpture can be so important in an outdoor space; it creates focus, intensifies the sense of place and relates to the vegetation, light and the seasonality of a garden.
We also love it when sculptures are used as physical punctuation; at the end of a long view, they become a full stop, or a comma as they lead onto another space or another sculpture.
We love the work of Charlotte Mayer, a Goldsmiths graduate. One of her pieces ‘The Thornflower’ commemorates the death of her grandmother in Treblinka at the hands of the Nazis, but at the same time represents the hope of reconciliation. Her work has wonderful movement and would enchant and enhance the right space.
More information on Charlotte can be found on The Garden Gallery’s website, amongst many other talented artists.
