Matthew Garrett extracts his imagery from unremarkable environments, isolating the visual murmurs of our surroundings. The images themselves don’t rest in one place--or on one thought--as they bounce from the slightly cryptic, to the strictly abstract and over to the plainly beautiful, before returning to more vernacular descriptions in which things are exactly as they appear to be.
Gerald Saladyga sees landscape painting not as a romantic representation of the past, but as an ongoing inspiration from an ever-changing environment. His current series of landscapes began in 2008 and culminated in 2012 with a present a view of the planet as a cartoon of itself, perhaps too real to be funny or too unreal to be taken seriously.
