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.
