My work is informed by nature, a kind of mythical nature. The power of storms, the spiritual quality of the elements, the beauty, grace and ferocity of plants and animals…something greater than myself, something I can’t comprehend. Painting and making monotypes is my search for the mystery within the subject, within myself. Phil Garrett
