Logs and Sand, Oregon, 1976

On page 8 of Visual Prayers, we find this image from the Oregon coast. This is a good example of how Richard is able to extract beauty from visual chaos. The page faces the beginning of an article about Richard’s work and influences by Mary Murray, curator at the Monterey Museum of Art. To quote Mary, “During his long career Richard Garrod has created a body of work – lyrical, sensitive, and intuitive – that always seeks to see more deeply, and is as fine as any that exists today.”
