Rick Garland is a true photorealist painter, and an absolute master of his craft. He focuses on atmosphere and light. His ability to transform abandoned and derelict spaces into captivating and engaging images is remarkable.
Rick Garland writes: ‘I have a fascination with nature’s grip on man-made creations. How purposefully built structures transform with time, weather, people and circumstance. What, at first glance, could be dismissed as an obsolete, man-made, functional structure, has been adopted as a canvas of vibrant, creative expression and is now a living organism being reclaimed slowly and systematically by its natural surroundings’.
