Outgrowth is an experiment in using canvases as structures for housing plants. Created for Grow Op 2013, the inaugural year of the now annual multidisciplinary landscape, art and design exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel, these two canvases were outfitted with soil reservoirs so that plants could be grown within them, poking through slits cut into the canvas. Below is a time lapse recording of the painting process for "Outgrowth 1."
