Where to buy...Gonzalo Puch

Puch's  luminous photographs can be bought at Julie Saul Gallery.

Tigers mingle with houseplants, miniature deer, and other eclectic objects in Gonzalo Puch’s carefully staged “temporary gardens,” which he captures in luminous photographs. The surprising juxtapositions create layers of meaning and an offbeat beauty that recall the humor and mystery of surrealism. Yet underlying the kooky fun is incisive commentary on the nature of artifice. “Planting,” by definition, involves a modicum of stagecraft. In a world where manicured rosebushes, ceramic gnomes, and evenly spaced cabbages routinely share plots of soil, is a garden of habañeros, twigs, and Chinese drawings really so far-fetched? At Julie Saul Gallery, 535 W. 22nd St., New York, (212) 627-2410. Through July 1. Prices range from $3,000 to $9,000.
