The Kid Gets Out of the Picture at Materials and Application
Los Angeles, California
2016, Complete

“The Kid Gets out of the Picture” is of a contemporary English picturesque garden set inside the interior courtyard of Materials & Applications in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. Exploring William Gilpin’s picturesque travel sketches from the late eighteenth century, the LADG appropriated the organizational logic of his drawings, which frequently depict dense, heterogeneous collections of rocks and plants. These “clumps” consolidate together as a single entity regardless of the diversity of their constituent parts, creating a material landscape that is both continuously variable and continuously navigable.
