“The garden, a place in our minds, a world of our own, created, protected, careful...artificial? an intimate utopia that isolates us from the uncontrollable, like a first shell. An ecosystem of ideas in which any kind of seed and fruit is possible. But, at the same time, in its apparent control and simplicity, the garden might be a labyrinth, a place in which all the depths of the self are possible. Like in a Hieronymus Bosch garden, full of costructions that seem almost real, of fragile and light shells, which organic forms allow the gaps that hide as much as they reveal... and like in the garden of Borges, that non-place in which infinite options fit, and which principal theme remains unnamed... The works of Tom Carr created around the idea of the flawed garden constitute a whole fresh and changing vocabulary: the voids harden and the forms turn into spaces; they transform themselves into confluence places, into vertex of the void or alive structures that rise precarious but decidedly, up to where the light is. Embrace the air saturated with colour and reveals the impulse of the hidden in them, strengthening forcefully their existence”.
