Cadence Giersbach created site-specific painted environments of gardens and interiors. Her work conflates experiences of intimacy and exclusion, fantasy and memory. At Deitch Projects, she showed Plastic Replicating Garden, a series of fourteen eight-foot-tall wooden panels, hinged to form screens. These panels were upholstered in white vinyl and painted with scenes of a duplicating and dissolving English garden.
The images in Plastic Replicating Garden were derived from a traditional English garden replete with box hedges and trimmed topiary. In a formalized garden, a sense of controlled, interior order was imposed on an exterior, uncontrolled space.
Drawings from the garden were computer-manipulated in order to heighten the sense of perceptual change that occurred when one location was experienced from different vantage points and in different states of mind. These images were blown up large and painted on folding screens in order to envelop the viewer and intensify the variety of perceptual changes that occurred when one location was over-looked-at.
Cadence Giersbach studied art at Vassar College, Rutgers University, and the Skowhegan School. In 1997, she was the recipient of fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and Vassar College.
