Garth Full Time Professional Self Taught

Biography

Garth works predominantly in oils because of the richness of the colours and the consistency achieved by layering the paint with a combination of brush and palette use resulting in a rich texture. His use of colour and light is influenced by his African heritage in relation to vibrancy and spatial elements. Garth works loosely with bold colours showing form and movement. His subjects are diverse ranging from sport and dance to abstracted landscape. His landscapes are drawn from emotions when visiting a site and often include derelict buildings or left over man made debris. Garth uses personal experiences to create beautifully expressive canvases evoking both emotional and physical sensuality. The overriding theme is reinterpreting and allowing captured glimpses into his everyday experiences. Garth draws inspiration from images in the media, life drawing and his own photography. He work from sketches and directly from images as well as painting plein air.
