The merging of the human visage within the ancient mediums of stone and wood
has long intriqued the artist with it's emotional context, the poetic and
spirtiually eloquent voice assumed by the work. Recent portraits by DJ
Garrity have included Sacajawea,
Aung San Suu Kyi
Stephanie de Montsoreau.
The artist will be creating 'The Boathouse Series' of new works sculpted in
stone at a renovated boathouse on Kenmare Bay in County Kerry, Ireland.
"Human faces are carved in surprising ways into
Garrity's work, suggesting the threads that connect myth, past and present,
and even forces of nature."
