Importance of the space

Stroud Open Gardens and Sculpture Trail combined two of my interests. After thinking more deeply about space, it was interesting to notice my responses to various pieces.

This very large “pebble” created as a garden seat, was a fascinating object – so large against the grass, where one’s expectation was that it would be small. The outdoor setting contributed to the experience.

The willow dancer had such movement and energy against the hedge and on the lawn. I would have liked to see two “legs”, but I did enjoy the shapes very much.

The pot was almost lost in the garden space as it seemed to be part of the garden. As a piece of art I found it most pleasing of all and yet it did not stand out against its surroundings. This tells me that it is not always obvious how best to display artwork.
