An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Sid Garrison.
Sid Garrison is an artist living and working in San Francisco. Born in 1954 in Wichita, KS, Garrison has been working and exhibiting for over thirty years. His dominate body of work consists of abstract drawings with a focus utilizing colored pencils. His work has been shown in Japan, Australia and Canada. Nationally, it has been shown at Gallery Joe (Philadelphia), Knoedler & Co. Project Space (New York), Danese (New York), Limn Gallery (San Francisco), Patricia Sweetow Gallery (San Francisco) and Sherry Frumkin Gallery (Santa Monica). In addition to private collections, his work has been collected by The Wichita Art Museum, The Philbrook Museum of Art, Arkansas Arts Center and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
“Committed to abstraction, I try to tease out atmospheres and memory fragments of daily life by various means as I draw. The measure I set for myself is to make each drawing considerably unique. The resulting body of work functions more like a collection of short stories than the interlocking chapters of a novel.”
