Nelia Justo

Temple of Delight wood & paint 200 x 130 x 130cm
Undercliff Winery, 2007

Captured here in the early morning dawn by photographer Lisa Hogben, Nelia's fanciful garden pavilion –is a place to rest; a place for frivolity and whimsy as garden architecture or ornament? Based on Chinoiserie-style pavilions of 18th century European gardens, this pavilion initially appears as a conventional structure. All is not as it seems - It soon becomes evident there is no entrance and no shelter to be had.
