A time-worn brick faces diagonally in the middle of the composition. Thick impasto layers of red, brown, green, blue, and yellow give the subject a tactile quality. "I found this brick in a pile outside my home," says artist McGarren Flack, "and I wanted to capture it as a portrait, rather than as a still life."

McGarren Flack

St. George, Utah

Utah-based artist McGarren Flack captures everyday moments of human vulnerability through painterly realism. His career as a paramedic brings him face-to-face with people at their most helpless moments, which inspired him to contemplate the nature of being vulnerable. Whether sitting alone in a cafe or unknowingly dropping a possession on the street, the human condition is always subject to powerlessness. “It is important for me to share these scenes because I believe it will help the viewer connect to humanity,” says McGarren. “There is no escaping the feeling of vulnerability; it is blind to skin color, social status, and age.”
