Sid Garrison


colored pencil on paper
10 x 10 inches

California artist Sid Garrison meticulously works with ideas of atmosphere, organic form, and transformation in his drawings. Using colored pencils as his preferred medium, Garrison investigates how mark making can evoke puzzle pieces or fragmented maps fused together. In 38155, Garrison tightly composes multiple small, explosively organic marks, ultimately creating an atmospheric space that projects an elegant automated composition akin to a fireworks show or a field of blooming flowers. Sid Garrison’s work has appeared in various group shows throughout the country, including An Exchange with Sol LeWitt at MASSMoCA.
