Exhibit: Ashley Garrett at Acumen Project Space
February 20th – April 30th
Ashley Garrett’s new body of work explores the uncanny qualities in common household objects. Growing up in a small rural town in Northeastern Pennsylvania, a slate mining town with its now silenced quarry holes and obsolete tools, her work is infused with a sense of still contemplation and memory. These paintings and drawings reflect that stillness and weight and objects take on a totemic-like power when pressured through Garrett’s imagination.
