Sadly, the artist Flo McGarrell’s life was stopped short this week by the earthquake in Haiti. I wasn’t familiar with his work previously, but upon being alerted to his story by our friend Matias Viegener and reading more about him it seems appropriate to post a short encomium to his life and work. I will let this in-depth story and interview with him from just this past summer tell the story of his ideas but suffice it to say he was taking a very interesting approach the the intersection of sculpture and environmental art and was doing his part to affect real positive change in the world.
Our thoughts go out to all of those affected by the disaster in Haiti.
