Michael Petrie’s Approach to Garden Art

by

Who can forget Michael Petrie’s fabulous exhibit at the 2011 Flower Show? Known for his beautiful creations comprised of objets trouves (found objects), Petrie’s works are one-of-a-kind and blur the line between trash and treasure.

You can see his affinity for found objects at Michael Petrie’s Handmade Gardens, located in Downingtown, PA. You can also learn more about his aesthetic approach in this philly.com article.

As he says, “Art is put into a garden because you have a connection to it. Garden art should have soul. It should have personality. You can’t just go out and buy stuff and plunk it in your yard.” Read the article, and check out past blogs on this renaissance garden artist!
