Night garden of toxic silk flowers and neo-baroque tapestries was created by G Patterson it’s among of the most enduring tales of deception: Eve and Adam’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden after eating the forbidden fruit, the original sin.
In Ebony G Patterson’s largest survey to date, the mixed media artist similarly lures viewers into her intricately composed ‘night garden’, where a bounteous display of glitter, lace, beads, fabric flowers, tassels, brooches, gold thread, costume jewelry and plastic ornaments belies the somber themes planted within.
Patterson’s verdant creations caught the eye of designer Christian Louboutin, who is backing the PAMM exhibition (the artist created a tapestry for his boutique during Miami Art Week). Having almost become a landscape designer himself, Louboutin shares a special affinity for gardens with the artist and the Miami show is particularly resonating. ‘The dark [wallpaper] reinforces something which is associated with gardens and lush places: the smell,’ explains the French designer. ‘Smell is very important when you arrive in a place where you’re surrounded by plants, whether it’s rotten or incredibly fragrant – there is always this presence.’
