Lucinda's practice is inspired by vivid childhood memories of using the garden as a form of escapism, a beautiful world that would never cease to fascinate. These intimate reflections position the garden as a space to nurture raw and sincere emotions and in a private and personal way. As I have grown older, I have yearned to acquire knowledge about the diversity and language of plants to better understand its intimate freedom.
Themes of travel and time have cultivated a strong symphony between the language of plants and the human’s biological empathy. Alluding to the 1996 statement by landscape designer Bernard Lassus:
‘The garden is the place where inventions of our time are made’.
These words dive into the complex relationship between man and nature in that man cannot construct the time in which plants grow.
