"Human faces are carved in surprising ways into Garrity's work, suggesting the threads that connect myth, past and present, and even forces of nature." (c)2000 Boston Irish Reporter

A singular addition to the archives of direct stone sculpture. Award-winning artist DJ Garrity moves past historical overviews with a focused approach that allows students to create a work in stone which carries their unique creative imprint. A result enjoyed by hundreds of novice and experienced stone carvers at workshops conducted across America and Europe. Developed during his tenure as Sculptor-In-Residence of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, the artist uses basic hand tools to demonstrate and introduce the 'process aesthetic', a subtle approach that allows a likeness and essence of personality to emerge from within the ancient patina and natural contours of stone.
