"Weed Choked Garden"
by sabine7 / January 30, 2006


Weed Choked Garden is one of Roxy Paine’s latest installations. Known for his stainless steel trees, fields of poppies and mushrooms, Paine now presents an 8 x 11 foot depiction of weeds choking tomato plants in a hand-made vegetable patch. Thirteen different types of weed impose natural chaos upon the human attempts at order. Previously, some of Paine’s work has included installations that see artificial mushrooms growing out of wooden floors or life-sized stainless steel trees amongst their natural counterparts.
