Arts in Foggy Bottom 2008 and 2010
Garrett Strang’s recent works with stone reflect a relationship to the natural world and our impact on it. A typical work begins with a series of sketches that reveal a contrast of forces and energy inherent within the chosen materials whether stone, steel, and/or wood. In order to craft these visions into original sculptures, he must employ a combination of both current and traditional methods. His works exploit the embodied properties of form, tension, and balance within the medium and juxtaposes these to the immediate surroundings.
