**THIS IS THE THIRD OF FOUR ARTISTS TO BE REVEALED THIS WEEK. STAY TUNED INTO <STABLETALK> FOR A NEW ARTIST AND LOCATION EVERY DAY!**
By Susy Oliveira
My work intends to examine our preoccupation with replacing nature with fabricated versions of it as well as delving into ideas of digital and technological reproduction. By definition, the garden; complete with its natural components; is a construction made for our own pleasure and consumption. This piece endeavors to present some trust and hope in nature despite our constant interventions.
