Richard Garrison analyzes ubiquitous materials, objects, activities and places from the suburban, often consumer related, American landscape, such as Sunday newspaper sale circulars, parking lot colors, product packaging colors, and architectural colors of locations like Disney World and Wal-mart, Target, Toys-R-Us, and Home Depot, among others. Through a process of careful scientific-like scrutiny Garrison dissects and restructures the color schemes of common everyday objects that are marketed and consumed by his average American family. This deconstruction of quotidian objects and experience is a personal, non-judgmental, examination of the visual, emotional and conceptual aspects of consumerism. While the analytical quantification and qualification of his studio practice offers us a thoughtful re-examination of objects and experiences ubiquitous to the suburban American experience; the resulting Minimalist compositions expose the beauty in the banal. This recontextualization of aspects of consumer culture affords us a new perspective on often overlooked or ignored experiences.
