disturbance in the field

Lloyd Godman - June/July 2001 - disturbance in the field

Todos llevamos dentro esa gran poesta original, paradisiaca que es nuetstra
union nuestra comunidad de nuestra tierra planetaria.
Y deber de todos los que bemos dejado el paraiso, por necesidad o por equivocacion,
es exaltara en el pueblo. Le-vantando la poestia del pueblo,
se harbara diseminado la mejor semilla social y politica.

Jaun Ramon Jimenez, lecture in La Plata (Argentina) , 8 September 1948

In the mid 1990s, Godman made the connection that the process of taking photographs with film and growing plants was analogous - both use light and water - plants are in fact an abstract form of photography. In 1996 he began by growing simple images into the leaves of Bromeliad plants which in turn led to sophisticated interactive installations. Working with plants traces the development of this work.

Lloyd Godman's twin careers of serious and successful organic gardener and practicing artist of great creative energy converge in new and constantly surprising ways to make art about the ecological concerns that underly his gardening. Over almost three decades his art has widened out from relatively traditional landscape photography to include elements of performance, audience participation art and multimedia installation to explore the tensions between electronic consumer society and the ecosystem.
