Private: Garrett Gilbart

Garrett Gilbart is a sculptor with a unique artistic approach, specializing in the creation of intricate works using salvaged steel objects. With a background in welding and fabrication, and formal training from Sir Sanford Fleming College, NSCAD University, and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Garrett’s work focuses on the cultural and personal significance of objects and tools, exploring the fading aura of utility and often incorporates historical textile patterns and motifs from the Arts and Craft movement.

“My work often involves found objects, such as tools, that have been reworked and overgrown with steel foliage based on the native plants from around my farm. I am often brought heirloom tools to work on as commissioned pieces. My practice revolves around notions of labour, history and the natural world.” – Garrett Gilbart
