Garrison's recontextualization of aspects of consumer culture affords us a new perspective on commonplace objects, places and experiences. His Circular Color Schemes, (puns intended) measure the amount of each color from product images taken from Sunday newspaper sale circulars. Garrison plots the colors in concentric rings of color in gouache and watercolor on paper that graphs the amount of each color from each image. Each wedge of colors in the circle is labeled as to which picture of the product it originates, like "frozen chicken" or "flat-screen T.V." The resulting compositions look like a cross between a color wheel and a Joseph Albers painting.

Garrison’s Minimalist compositions expose the beauty in the banal. Through a process of careful scientific-like scrutiny Garrison dissects and restructures the color schemes of common everyday objects, places and experiences. Coupled with Hanne Darboven-like analytical quantification and qualification his studio practice offers us a thoughtful re-examination of objects and experiences ubiquitous to the American experience. This deconstruction of quotidian objects and experience is a personal, non-judgmental, examination of the visual, emotional and conceptual aspects of consumerism.
