Abstract:

By its very nature, folk art is hilarious, cranky, homely, beautiful or just plain charming, and appeals to almost everyone. Over the years, folk artists across Canada have produced an inventive and eclectic array of objects to decorate their homes, yards and gardens, creating their own personal Edens. This delightful book displays the wide range of folk art that decorates yards across the nation: whirligigs of loggers sawing, sea gulls flying, anglers casting, planes flying; weather vanes of improbable roosters and elegant horses and even surprised beavers; bird houses of fantastical and flamboyant architecture; lawn ornaments and yard sculptures of whimsical ducks, frogs, fish and other creatures; as well as original interpretations of family groupings, mythic figures and national icons such as Mounties.

The accompanying text by Phil Tilney explores the history of folk art and its various forms, the story of the development of Canadian yard art and the place of gardens as a re-creation of Eden in classical, medieval and renaissance times in Europe as well as in Asia and Canada.
