STAFFPICKS: ‘cul-de-sac’ by Joyce Garner

Source: LEO Weekly


For Joyce Garner, home is where the canvas is. Her new, large paintings (and I do mean large) are colorful and full of engaging individuals. Usually a table is involved. In other words, it’s life. “I kept thinking about the phrase ‘cul-de-sac,’” said Garner. “Like the setting [for each painting] is a cul-de-sac along the way. I don’t go anywhere, but for a little while I explore. Then back on the road. Memories, wishes, loss, hope. Resolution is with the viewer.”
