Gerald Garston

Represented by Pucker Gallery since 1970

BORN: 1925 in Waterbury, Connecticut
DIED: 1994 in Leyden, Massachusetts

If artists are indeed here to offer constructive criticism of life's disorder, then Gerald Garston was among our kindest but most uncompromising of critics. A graduate of John’s Hopkins University, Garston was also a student of Karl Metzler, Louis Boucher, and Josef Alberts. Distilling the randomness and multiplicity of our visual world into its essences, ordered in deceptively simple paintings to look behind the objects that clutter and confuse our lives to see the ideal; to see shapes, structures, and colors, intensified and purified, in pleasing and rational coexistence. The effect of contemplating a Garston painting is profoundly meditative. Garston's work is included in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University.
