Ashley Garrett

Ashley Garrett (b. 1984) is an abstract painter whose works, "through their swirling forms, capricious brushstrokes, and passages of brilliant light, capture the vibrant forces of nature. It is as if the forests in which Artemis hunted or the seas which wrecked Odysseus’s ship are given agency in Garrett’s work and begin to tell their own tales of turmoil and splendor," Robert R. Shane, The Brooklyn Rail.

Garrett has exhibited her work internationally for more than a decade. Solo shows include: SEPTEMBER Gallery (Kinderhook and Hudson, NY), Gold / Scopophilia Gallery (Montclair, NJ), and Hood Gallery (Brooklyn, NY). Her work has shown in group exhibitions at the Katonah Museum of Art (NY), Torrance Art Museum (Los Angeles, CA), the Painting Center (New York), NURTUREart (Brooklyn, NY), Cross Contemporary Art (Saugerties, NY), among others. Her work has been reviewed in Two Coats of Paint, The Brooklyn Rail, Art Spiel, and Caesura Magazine, among others. Recent shows include her second solo exhibition at SEPTEMBER Gallery and Untitled Art Fair in Miami Beach, FL.

Garrett has collaborated with poets, including Billie Chernicoff, Tamas Panitz, Robert Kelly, George Quasha, and Lila Dunlap, who have written ekphrastic poems to her paintings.
