I loved this little garden. It was one of seven small-space gardens called “Artisan Gardens.” Designed by Gillespies, it’s representing, obvious the art & artists of Yorkshire — including Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney, Andy Goldsworhty and JMW Turner. It even had a Hepworth sculpture in it.Traditional field patterns form the foreground, rolling moors in the mid-ground, complete with the undulating rocky hills in the background are framed — with a frame — for the viewer.
I liked the frame — forcing a specific view of the garden reminiscent of the landscapes favored by the artists above. I also really like the dry-staked stone walls topped with side-laid slate.
