Garden of healing – and poison

Chris King, St. Louis American , September 7, 2020

Ebony G. Patterson was speaking by phone from her mother’s home in Kingston, Jamaica, discussing why it is so difficult to experience her complex, three-dimensional, mixed-media art work by looking at photographs of it, when she was interrupted, she said, by the sound of “a man cutting the garden.”


Since her show opening at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis is themed and titled after a garden, perhaps there was a story there?
