PLANT POEMS

2010

Several short poetic verses, constructed from photographs taken of garden nameplates, reveal Levy’s savvy use of irony.  These labels, with wildly imaginative titles (Tall, Dark and Handsome; Virgin, Super-Ego, etc.), anthropomorphize and objectify the plant life, while hinting at a nominal function. Paradoxical and satirical, these limericks suggest a back story to the video installation through their suggested narratives. – Nicelle Beauchene gallery owner
