"Gardens should be a series of diverse secrecies"
— Ian Hamilton Finlay

Diverse Secresies: The Garden Photographed offers an eclectic mix of work by artists with a shared passion. For centuries, artists have produced garden imagery as documentations, as records of the growing places of respite which women and men continue to create for themselves. What is relayed more often than not is less evidence of fact than an elicitation of solitary thoughts / dreams / desires. Paradisean, often, yet edged always with indeterminacy and sometimes apprehension.

Supported by the Canada Council and Mido Framers, Vancouver.

A catalogue was published by Presentation House Gallery in conjunction with the exhibition.
