DESCRIPTION

Stephen Garmey

Exhibition

Recent Works Wood Sculptures

Dates June 2-June 27, 2009
Reception Tuesday, June 2, 6-8 p.m.
Viridian Artists Gallery is pleased to present recent works in wood by Stephen Garmey. This will be Garmey’s 10th exhibition at Viridian.

“With a rugged sense of architectural space, Stephen Garmey composes geometric wooden sculptures whose block-like components express a tension that recalls the Straits of Corinth and Stonehenge. They have the power and presence of monumental architectural experience. Brown and raw, this work appeals to our natural affection for the handsome and substantial quality of blocks of wood. The grain, which provides the only relief to the planar surfaces, heightens an organic effect that contrasts with the continuity and simplicity of their shape. The subtle irregularities of the edges which occasionally curve and slant serve to soften the geometry surprising us with unexpected changes in direction. This sudden unpredictability to the work is matched by a tension and mystery created by the deep and narrow between the blocks.”
