Description

Shows the distinctiveness of Garston's flat, solid colorful figures - work that is often compared to that of early American folk artists and the pre-Renaissance paintings of Giotto and Duccio. Gerald Garston distills the randomness and multiplicity of our visual world into its essences, ordering them into deceptively simple paintings that look into its essences, ordering them into deceptively simple paintings that look behind to the ideal within, presenting shapes, structures, and colors intensified and purified, in pleasing and rational coexistence. He engages with life fully, in works vibrant with bold contrasts of color, shapes, and patterns in vivid interaction: athletes, wild animals, bright fruits and flowers. Figures and objects pour forth onto the canvas, while brilliant color enlivens the spaces for the viewer to behold and partake. Gerald Garston has had one-man exhibitions throughout the country. His work is included in permanent collections at the Fogg Museum, Los Angeles County Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Rose Museum (Brandeis University), to name a few.
