Mark Garrett: Drawing, Painting & Collage

Jul 30, 2017 to Oct 8, 2017

Mark Garrett transforms neglected maps picked up at flea markets into intricately cut, mixed-media pieces with drawing, painting and collage.  The creative impulse of his scissor-drawn collages and rambling ink drawings finds its source in a rich youthful exposure to the woodland landscape and seasonal cycle of his Middle Tennessee roots. Says Garrett: “As the last of 6 kids, I spent considerable amounts of time alone in nature. We lived near dense woods and were often left to our own devices.  My sense of comfort with the outdoors and a trust in the natural order of plants and animals felt like part of the background of life.  Over time this also became the subtle fuel for much of my present creativity.”
