Lisa Garland: Raw Backyards - Art Collector

Lisa Garland, ‘Fred’s Garden’, 2018. Giclee print, 90 x 110cm, edition of 5. Courtesy: the artist and Despard Gallery, Hobart.

 Lisa Garland is interested in our need to control and dominate, more like, she is drawn towards the imagery that deviates from this necessity. She is attracted to the folk that do not conform to society ‘rules’. She likes the gardener that allows a blackberry vine to have a place, the dweller who montages his bedroom wall because he can, the coastal resider who dedicates hours to maintaining his fish trap. Garland turns her back on the conformist, the man in the spot light. She wants to hunt out the true humble gems she finds in abundance on the North West and West Coast of Tasmania, her home.
