Larry Garmezy: Stuck at Archway Gallery, Houston. Dates: March 5 – 31, 2022.
“Larry Garmezy is one quirky photographer. A retired geologist he’s spent his life as a photographer inspired by nature’s beauty and his unique digital photographic techniques are quite stunning. But what does a photographer do when his muse is taken away? Plunges into uncharted waters. And, in this case his own backyard.
Larry normally travels to the springs of the Northern Rocky Mountains for inspiration but during COVID that wasn’t possible. So, while STUCK at home, he turned to a source of water a little bit closer — his fifty-year-old pool. The patterns formed by the circulation jets function as a stand-in for the natural water surface distortion and ripples he usually photographs. Garmezy’s show, Stuck, is a unique, often playful, chronicle of a disrupted life, a deserted downtown, and how stuck we, as individuals, remain as our society ripples and shifts.
The artist will be present at the gallery to visit with guests throughout the day on Saturday, March 5, from 12 – 8 p.m., and will talk about his work at 6:30 pm.”
