About this artwork

A painter for several decades before she picked up a camera, Irene Siegel employs photographs as the raw material for elaborate digital designs. She began working with Adobe Photoshop in the 1990s, manipulating images to painterly effect. After acquiring land in northern Indiana, Siegel became an avid gardener, reading classical texts on the subject and developing an appreciation for the order that horticulture imposes on chaotic nature. Just as a garden flourishes with the right level of cultivation, this image of ornamental grasses and birds grows organically within its structural boundaries.
