Abstract (English)

"While on residency in London UK, Polish-Canadian artist Dagmara Genda took hundreds of photographs of one common laurel hedge, situated in Regent's Park, which had, as is popular custom, been perfectly sculpted and sheared into a rectangular forms. The laurel was photographed under various natural and artificial lighting conditions, allowing Genda to produce a wide palette of green shades. Abstracting the leaf forms through photography and photo manipulation, she also arrived with huge vocabulary of Impressionistic brushstrokes as well. These images have been cut up and assembled into collages that reference Constructivist and Suprematist works of the early-to-mid twentieth century. Her project references the utopian and political aspirations of the Constructivists to articulate the utopian and political dimensions of the garden – specifically the English garden - as attempts to civilize and control nature." -- Publisher's website.
