Welcome to My Garden at Ivy Brown Gallery

by | Jul 27, 2023 | Blog post

Loren Eiferman has brought summer to the Ivy Brown Gallery with her exhibition “Welcome To My Garden”. Eiferman invites you to immerse yourself in a world where transformed shapes, lines, and colors are all crafted out of nature’s detritus. The inspiration for her sculptures come from the botanical illustrations found within the pages of both the mysterious and cryptic 15th-century Voynich Manuscript as well as the black and white images of early 20th-century German photographer Karl Blossfeldt from his seminal book “Urformen der Kunst”.

The intention is for these sculptures to appear as if they were born from nature itself, and they grew organically over time. The truth is that they are composed of hundreds of intricately joined pieces of wood. Through the seamless integration of all these elements, Eiferman strives to blur the boundaries between the man-made and the natural, encouraging viewers to contemplate our profound interconnectedness between humans and the environment we all share and inhabit.
