Regan Gentry spent 3 months on site to create the sculptural tree featured in the gar-den, “Ecology of Place” by Suzanne Biaggi. A native to Christchurch New Zealand, Gentry is one of a group of pioneer public artists shaping the landscape of New Zealand’s Urban Centers.
Gentry’s artistic practice typically depicts the relationship of people to their environment and how this is acted out. Using a wide range of materials and situations, his work is characterized by a playful musing and using of material, language, location and struc-ture. The phrases, materials and circumstances he employs in his work are chosen for their familiarity and well-established usage in our lives. The interplay of people and place, local history and situational relevance, often inform his conceptual decisions.www.regangentry.com Back to all designers
