Garnett’s paintings dwell on scenes that cannot be observed with the naked eye: overlooked edges of unknown landscapes in moments that resemble twilight, the interval between night and day that is paradoxically both and neither. Her source material, found images drawn from surveillance footage and night vision photographs, reveals our contemporary condition of watching and being watched. Her painted landscapes invite a contemplative gaze as they conjure an atmosphere of a world half-asleep but waking and on the cusp of something new.
