  • Artist Talk: Woody Woodroof on Botanical Cyanotypes Show 'Invasives' - Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
    and environmental impacts of using cotton fabric for his prints and has since decided to use hemp an exceptionally beneficial soil building nitrogen fixing crop considered far more sustainable than cotton There are so many practical motives in the decisions around his work that the farm again inserts its influence into the process The most recent prints from Invasives are on display through September 21 in Ginter Gallery II at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden The cyanotype prints are made on 7 feet long pieces of cotton and hemp and many of the plants chosen are considered non native invasive weeds By creating beautiful and mysterious imprints of these undesirable plants Woodroof transforms them into beautiful objects of art According to Woodroof We have seen it before throughout recent agricultural history With the best of intentions we have introduced plants and trees from the other side of the world over the past five centuries Might our science labs be introducing something today that we will find invasive in time These prints explore both sustainable fabrics invasive plants and the ironies of our solutions About Woody Woodroof Woody Woodroof studied photography at Denison University in the late 1980 s receiving his BFA in Photography His continued education thereafter included a series of intensive workshops taught by several photographers who would have a profound impact on his later development Among these early influences Linda Connor David Sauer Sally Mann and Emmet Gowin are possibly the most prominent During the 1990 s Woodroof landed in Tucson AZ where his path crossed that of photo historian Keith McElroy at University of Arizona McElroy kindly allowed him to take his History of Photography classes without Woodroof being officially enrolled at the university It was McElroy who pointed Woodroof in the direction of photographer Ann Simmons Myers a well known instructor of alternative photo processes and then a professor at Pima Community College At PCC Woodroof learned gum bi chromate printing and the cyanotype process and was exposed to a variety of other alternative processes Woodroof s working with medium and large format photography might be described as pursuing classical formats within contemporary photography but his experimentation with various materials the building of cameras and the coating of unconventional papers demonstrated that his work was becoming decidedly more intuitive or primitive Thrift stores became as important to his work as was the photographer s formulary where photo chemicals might be purchased Cruising for any containers that might be suitable for adaptation into pinhole cameras or camera obscuras became part of the ritual suitcases trashcans tobacco tins whatever he might find really could have in them the potential for new types of work These years of eclectic education produced a lot of various types of work but Woodroof quickly points out that the process during this period was often more important than the ideas behind the work Woody surprised his friends and family when he changed gears in 1996 and left the southwest to found a community supported

  • Mother's Day Revisited, the Year of Exploration - Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
    warm day Then my daughter asked the question that made this Mother s Day visit to the Garden different than each of the previous years Mommy can you show us some other parts of the Garden Playing in the Children s Garden And we were off on an adventure during which the girls had the best day ever We started in the Children s Garden where the girls went up in the CWD Kids Tree House and looked out over the Garden On the way up they saw another child playing the drum set under the ramp and wanted to try that next After playing with the drum set they built fairy houses in the Gnome Depot and explored other parts of the Children s Garden The girls were having so much fun that they said that they never wanted to leave Exploring the Woodland Walk and Flagler Garden Following our time in the Children s Garden the girls wanted to explore the secret passageway otherwise known as the Woodland Walk and Flagler Garden This walk provided a perfect opportunity to put my 9 month old in the stroller and give him a nap as we followed the girls They loved the benches winding walkways streams bridges and flowers along the way The Flagler Lawn was the perfect spot for twirling and lying down in the grass and they wanted to see what creatures might be hiding under the benches near the slow dance sculpture The girls watching Pop Pop s band Glennroy and Company during their final song We ended back at Bloemendaal House for the final set of Pop Pop s Band Too sad to dance again because the day was coming to an end the girls watched the band over the back of a chair Long after
