I thought of home gardens, community gardens and botanic gardens in the future. Climate changes, such as prolonged raining season, extreme hot weather and great temperature differences causes flood, forest fires, sickness and animals lost habitats. How are man-made, artificial gardens to survive in such circumstances? Where will be the parks and gardens for children and senior citizens?
In Muller’s morphs terms, ‘hypermorph’ means a mutation that causes an increase in normal gene function. Instead of presenting the scientifically proven images, I choose to present a series of surreal, metaphorical hypermorphed garden.
Hypermorph Garden is a mixed media painting (1) shortlisted for the Octopus Energy Art Prize 2019/20 ‘Portraits from the Precipice’, UK; and (2) selected for TOP 100 Social Art Award 2021, Germany. It is now sold to a private collector in the United State.
