From the press release: Richard Garrison analyzes ubiquitous materials and objects from the suburban American landscape, such as Sunday newspaper sale circulars, drive-thru window menu color schemes and product packaging. Through a process of careful scientific-like scrutiny Garrison dissects and restructures the color schemes of common everyday objects and creates Minimalist compositions that expose the beauty in the banal. This deconstruction of quotidian objects and experience is a personal, non-judgmental, examination of the visual, emotional and conceptual aspects of consumerism.
