June 2017 Meeting - Integrating Fine Art, Land Art, and Horticulture

Jun 06 2017

Topher Delaney

Integrating Fine Art, Land Art, and Horticulture




A long time ago... precisely 44 years ago... with a degree in philosophy / art history from Barnard and landscape architecture from U.C. Berkeley, Topher Delaney, dug in + dug up + dug around... creating + constructing site specific installations commonly referred to as gardens of three dimensional fine art / horticulture and literature.

Topher Delaney with her able partner Calvin Chin has developed a practice, Delaney + Chin, devoted to grounding + transforming sites to benefit individuals + communities, both spiritually and aesthetically... Calvin Chin has actually been ordained a Buddhist monk.

In scope and scale, their broad range of installations serve as dynamic physical evidence of a visual + spiritual + cultural literacy integrating wonderful exemplars of horticulture and transformative cyclic aspects of nature with distinctive specific cultural linguistic narratives.  The text of the terrain is realized in the structure of these narratives, crafted by technical skill and quality materials to create a sanctuary grounded in space and time.  We have faith in a future... and so we plant for others to prosper
