Colorado Springs artist creates secret garden in new exhibit | Arts & Entertainment

Posted on

What lurks below a thriving garden might be even more beautiful.

Liz McCombs has spent months building a secret garden in her studio. What has emerged are ceramic and mixed-media humanlike sculptures all caught in the mysterious process of metamorphosis. Greenery sprouts up out of curled-up human figures; rootlike vegetables have grown heads sporting full lips and round eyes; and femalelike figures are given tangled roots for legs while lush gardens push up out of their skulls.

Her pieces start with kiln-fired ceramic to which she adds recycled materials, such as wood, bark and pieces of glass.

“A key element of the show was transformation from one thing to something else,” says the longtime Colorado Springs artist. “In the garden you have birth, death, one thing nourishing something else, all things that make life life. I incorporate those

How 2020’s ‘The Secret Garden’ differs from previous adaptations (exclusive)

Posted on

Watch: The Secret Garden trailer below

First published in 1911, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s novel The Secret Garden is widely recognised as a classic of English children’s literature, and has been adapted countless times, on stage, on television, and on film.

The first filmed version – sadly now lost – was made just eight years after publication in 1919, while its most recent big screen adaptation, produced by Francis Ford Coppola, came in 1993. Now, in 2020 a new version of the classic childhood tale – which sees a young girl discovering a hidden oasis on her uncle’s land – is being released into cinemas and on Sky Cinema on 23 October.

Produced by Heyday Films and Studiocanal – the team who brought us Paddington and Paddington 2 – this new version stars newcomer Dixie Egerickx in the lead as Mary Lennox, with Colin Firth as her uncle Archibald Craven and

Central Pa. man who shot secret bathroom videos of 15-year-old girl denied break on prison term

Posted on

A central Pennsylvania man who secretly shot nude bathroom videos of a teenage girl will be staying in prison after a state appeals court panel denied his appeal of his multiple child-sex convictions.

In an opinion by Senior Judge John L. Musmanno, the Superior Court rejected James A. Doll’s argument that police shouldn’t have been allowed to use the computer-based evidence they amassed against him.

Doll, 45, of Greencastle, claimed his computers were off-limits as evidence because his wife had no authority to give investigators permission to seize and search the devices for child pornography. He also insisted the search warrants police used to seize his computers weren’t sufficiently specific.

On those computers, police said they found child pornography, including videos Doll had secretly filmed of his accuser when she was 15.

Doll came under investigation in 2017 after the girl reported he had touched her inappropriately and had tried

The Secret Garden and the healing power of nature

Posted on

Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden has been described as “the most significant children’s book of the 20th century.”

First published in 1911, after being serialised in The American Magazine, it was dismissed by one critic at the time as simple and lacking “plenty of excitement”. The novel is, in fact, a sensitive and complex story, which explores how a relationship with nature can foster our emotional and physical well-being. It also reveals anxieties about national identity at a time of the British Empire, drawing on ideas of Christian Science.

The Secret Garden has been read by generations, remains a fixture on children’s publishing lists today and has inspired several film versions. A new film, starring Colin Firth, Dixie Egerickx and Amir Wilson, updates the story in some ways for modern audiences.

The Secret Garden – A Novel and A Feeling

Posted on

“Sometimes since I’ve been in the garden I’ve looked up through the trees at the sky and I have had a strange feeling of being happy as if something was pushing and drawing in my chest and making me breathe fast.”

– Frances Hodgson Burnett, “The Secret Garden”

A childhood classic piece of literature, “The Secret Garden” is a tale about nature and everyday magic. Two children, who both begin the story sick, in different ways, find a forgotten garden locked behind a hedge and bring it back to life. While tending the garden, however, it becomes part of the magic that brings them back to life.

To my mind, and likely to those of many others who read the book, the term “secret garden” revives an amorphous sensation as strongly as it does memories of the actual story: an impression of childhood wonder and secrecy, of swirling green and

Story 3.0

Acting/Cast 5.0

Music 3.0

Rewatch Value 1.0

Often when a remake of a drama is produced by another country many of the script changes are adaptations for the purpose of cultural and societal relevance to their country. However, this was not the case with the Thai version of Secret Garden, which I can best describe as misinterpretation that leads to a multitude of misunderstandings. Early on it was evident with their questionable casting choices for the lead roles and from there the drama continued to spiral downhill with a lack of attention to details; the omission of so many relevant scenes and shrinkage of the plot and subplots. Major plot points of the story became anti-climatic or glazed over and the humor is almost non-existent as a result of these omissions. Many of the important nonverbal and subtle nuance scene moments were removed from this version as well,
