Cardboard Brothel - Robert Davis Garner

Mar 5, 2021 - Mar 21, 2021


Robert Davis Garner continues his powerful theme of childhood experiences in this second exhibit that features an installation along with select artwork created over the past year. The painter delves deeper into those personal experiences and also into society's changing attitudes. Big dark dramatic canvases encompass what could be considered an homage to the nomadic nature of the homeless plight. Mixing found objects with intensely vibrant portraits and religious iconography, Mr Garner creates a symbolic image of the despair and tension of living on the streets, while conjuring an almost temple like illusion. His mighty scale and subject matter compels a must see in-person experience.

Show runs: March 5th - 21st
Opening: First Friday, Mar. 5th 6-10pm
