This work taps into the fantasy of the secret garden, a romantic escape from reality. Imagery of a rough and unkempt natural world taken from around the periphery of the urban park where weeds and vermin are allowed to flourish becomes a conduit to another world where everything is perfect. The miniature world seen through a small hole in the larger image represents the desire for a perfect nature; something we struggle to attain in real life but have more hope of escaping to in our imagination.
