Creating a conservatory from man-made materials, Keren Anavy responds to the late-fall landscape of Wave Hill. Suspended from the ceiling, abstract paintings on translucent Mylar dip into shallow pools of ink and correspond to the changing colors of Wave Hill’s seasonal plants—especially at the Aquatic Garden. The colored light shining in through the cellophane-covered windows marks the space as an insular, imagined landscape, a conservatory created from human-made materials. In a process that incorporates the element of chance, the artist mimics the relationship between accident and deliberation that occurs in man-made gardens.
