“Announcing Augusta Sparks Farnum’s newest body of drawings and interior murals, Beside the Garden. The new work is the third installment—the first two shown respectfully through her solo installations shown at AMO in Waitsburg in 2013, and at the Telander Gallery in Walla Walla in 2014. She has continued her work in graphite, this time adding mural paper and 23 karat gold as tools to represent her raw response to landscape.
Augusta’s new pieces explore the breached greenhouse, the forced entry of the garden into the interior space. For Augusta, the interior space is understood to be the surrounding interior of our physical existence: the home, the office, the studio, the school, the restaurant. It is also the interior of our physiological existence: the heart, the lungs, the breasts, the kidneys, the womb, the brain.” —Dylan Farnum
