NATURESCAPE

Dy­lan lewis, March 2017

Condé Nast House & Garden - - DESIGN NOTES -

When the brain be­hind a gar­den is an artist, one can only end up with some­thing in­di­vid­ual. and this mul­ti­lay­ered gar­den is on such a vast scale that the ef­fect is of na­ture on steroids. dy­lan sculpted the gar­den and wa­ter­bod­ies him­self, with­out out­side in­flu­ence, and the gar­den plant­ing is lay­ered di­rectly onto this un­du­lat­ing can­vas. his con­stant in­spi­ra­tion is his ex­pe­ri­ence of na­ture. hap­pily the build­ings and hard land­scap­ing play a quiet sup­port­ing role and the artist’s choice and place­ment of the sculp­ture is of­ten un­ex­pected and care­fully jux­ta­posed with rock and water in an in­stinc­tive way.
