Randy Garber


My work investigates perception and how meaning is deciphered. I use elemental and pedestrian materials (copper plates, copper tubes, player piano scrolls, plastic tubing) and traditional processes (etching, drypoint, graphite and pencil drawing) and deploy the shadows cast from the works to suggest lingering traces and infinite regressions of language spoken, heard and visually encoded.

Throughout my explorations in varied media in two and three dimensional work, my images and marks evoke a sense of order as well as orderly growth gone awry because I believe that the aberrant, the rogue and the wayward signals are the ones that can guide us to expanded understanding of our worlds and ourselves.

Emerging Cluster 2

I formed my response to the visual world growing up in North Texas, a landscape of intense sun, flatness, and air. Taking light and the natural world as subjects, I work from a combination of free association and direct observation. I am compelled by the interplay of light and shadow that creates emotional meaning, and am equally interested in looking inwards to depict incorporeal works of imagination.

Afterimage 2

After many years of edition printmaking, I no longer work to a pre-determined outcome or from a maquette. By working at the interface between printmaking and painting, I can improvise and exploit surprises as they appear in the course of experimentation and exploration.

In recent years I have been using woodblocks in unorthodox ways as a transfer tool to build images layer by layer. My response to each stage determines the next move in a painterly process of controlled accident, an alternation between intuition and deliberation. Although each print is unique, they all incorporate the history of their creation. No longer a purist, I exploit any available tool or means to transfer color and form to surface.
