Come see the colorful works that Jeff Garland has on display at the Averitt Center! You will definitely want to see how he manipulates both color and shape to create bright and mind bending pieces. He adheres to a set of rules for each of these, that can be described by him below: 

"Currently I am layering colors into a flat rectangular picture plane to create a volumetric space. These painting’s vibrant colors and transparent layers are created with hand crafted acrylic paints. I first begin every large scale painting with a scaled down maquette. My design comes from the set of guidelines that I follow when manipulating the flat plane. I can cut and fold any part of the plane but it cannot extend beyond the picture plane and nothing can be removed. This allows me to make decisions that I would not have made without these guidelines. It also has proven to challenge the picture planes tensions with space. After each cut and fold, I transfer the information to the larger painting. At this point I decide the color I want for that new shape. These color choices are based on the Hue Contrast mode. In this mode the color is the subject and the color structure is formed by the subordinate design elements. The visual proportions and relative relationships of hues need to be organized into a primary color hierarchy (yellow, red, and blue). Since every color is created from the three primary colors, hues can be visually assigned as a yellow(ish), red(ish), or blue(ish). This hierarchy can be in six combinations: (1Y, 2B, 3R), (1Y, 2R, 3B), (1R, 2Y, 3B), (1R, 2B, 3Y), (1B, 2R, 3Y), (1B, 2Y, 3R). To create proportional amounts of the primaries, channels on the color wheel must be turned off to create active and passive color gradients that vary in range. This weakens the colors connection to their primaries, making the color hierarchy readily identifiable."
