Karl Garrett – Manx artist

Loagthan Biker
THE first solo exhibition of local, award-winning artist Karl Garrett will take place at the Empress Hotel, Douglas, this month. The show, which comprises 19 paintings and four sculptures of varying scale, subject matter and media, will take place on Friday, September 24 and Saturday, September 25.

The Peel resident’s paintings are spontaneous, heavily texturised acrylic-based works which are full of colour, movement and emotion.

Being dyslexic, Karl freely acknowledges that writing is not his forte and finds that painting is a great way to express himself.

He said: ‘I love texture and movement and each piece is unique in itself as each one has a different feeling or mood that comes from my inner most thoughts.’
