Emblematic of Sayre Gomez’s interest in fences, boundaries and thresholds, Old Growth features the imagery of a chainlink fence complete with the remnants of intertwined and knotted branches reproduced at a 1:1 scale.

Drawing from a reflective cover designed for an artist’s book produced on the occasion of Gomez’s exhibition Apocalypse Porn at François Ghebaly (New York) in 2021, this UV-print on mirror explores the original gesture further by foregrounding a collision of the built environment and the natural world while simultaneously exploiting the nature of the mirror’s surface.
