January 2010: Garrett Price
All of the art will be rusted steel. I make art as a record of my experience. Through art making, I give myself a reason to explore places that inspire me; forests, train yards, abandoned buildings, and under bridges. In desolate and forgotten man-made environments, I search for a visual history of marks left by humankind. There is a story of human existence in the layers of graffiti and decay. There is a history of a violent collision in the scars on steel and concrete. I look to capture a compilation of elements that creates an accidental composition, weathered by the passing of time. Finding these hidden compositions, and exploring these places, triggers a nostalgia for being young and hungry for new experience. I make art as a record of that feeling, and the places I explore looking for it.
