Richard Garrison

This is a local guy that I am crazy about. I've seen his paintings at The Collector's Gallery and there's a show coming up at Tyndall's. It's the strong light patterns that I'm so attracted to, but I also love the rough texture and solid gestures of his figures. There's a stark anonymity about his people as though the were just there to shape the light. I love that idea. I was wondering if perhaps it's comes across to others as that kind of Hopper loneliness. I can't seem to find a home page on the web but I know he has a studio in Raleigh, NC. Here's one more gallery I found online.
