Tara Denny’s new exhibition Twisted Fate is based on personal experience of the garden as a site of passion and delight. A backyard space, yearning for love and a place of poetic self-reflection tinged with feelings of loss and longing. For Denny, changes observed and emotional interactions with the garden operate like a diary.

Diaries have long been associated with matriarchal traditions and the private act. In her own, Denny keeps small snippets; their pages sometimes water marked (by rain or the run of a tear?) or complicated with scratched out words. While these fugitive marks may obscure accounts of history, they endure as potent symbols evoking the power of memory. In Twisted Fate these pages and the marks they carry, once secret and hidden away, are opened to become the source and site of poetic resistance.
