Artist Statement

To put it simply I strive to create work with colloquial language and emotional resonance. Images with instant recognition in some form while providing an emotionally driven alteration or abstraction and (hopefully) achieving an interesting, beautiful aesthetic. Emotions are what drive us, what connects us. Staying true to and conveying my emotions is what allows the viewer to range from art historian to layman without a loss of experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to view my profile. Check my tumblr and facebook pages (above) for more images and updates. Hope to see you in September!

Aurock says: Mr. Garrett has only been painting for a short time but he has a lot of promise, combining photorealism with abstraction and nods to his stylistic influences. I am looking forward to larger-scale works that he's currently developing.
