“Painting contains its own paradoxes in these days of photographic ascendency, when photographs have been recognized as no more ‘truthful’ than any other medium. Curiously, the distance afforded by a painting permits a more intimate experience… than the fragmented, momentary, blitz of media photography. By reinventing her photographic sources, Garnett gives us time to be there, in place, on solid ground, however terrifying that may be.”
