Richard Garrison, who contributed a Weather Report to the first-ever SP Weather Reports portfolio in 2008, presented new work at Robert Henry Gallery’s booth at Volta NY March 7-10, 2013.
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.
Here’s a snap of the booth and a detail of the work.
