Honorable Mention--Sculpture

Untitled by Ray Garrett

Multiple laminations of Suma plywood sculpted with angle grinder, Dremel tools, files, and hand sanding, and finished with gloss floor wax.

Artist bio: Ray Garrett retired to St. Simons Island, Georgia, where he has pursued his desire to experiment with fine art. He began sculpting--using plywood as the primary medium because of its texture and unique lines. He eventually moved onto clay, portrait heads, animals and birds. Next was metal after a short course in welding and then onto paper mache. Easily bored and curious to experiment Ray move onto painting and is now working to combine sculpture into paintings, thus weaving a great deal of engineering into his art.
