Hi! My name is Ashley G. Garner and I am a photographer and video artist based in Brooklyn, NY.
I spent most of my childhood raised between Georgia and North Carolina, exploring and adventuring in the foothills and training to become a ballet dancer. In high school my family moved to Florida, where I stayed for college and shifted interests from ballet to fashion, earning Bachelor Degree’s in Fine Art Photo and Art History in Miami at Florida International University. During my time there I began to develop my photography work in fashion and self-portraiture while working as a part-time model.
In 2014, I moved to New York and have since worked full time in the business of the art world for companies such as SCOPE, Pier59 Studios, Lina Iris Viktor, Tribeca Printworks, and Comita Studios. Over the years my work has developed out of fashion advertising and into fine art and art therapy. I always say that my art is my personal therapy, but I hope that it can be used to help other people, too.
I am interested in a wide range of themes and as a result my art has touched on a wide range of topics. From mythology to body issues, to sound therapy and the environment, I use photo and video to capture narratives informed by symbolism, color psychology, art history, and scientific research. Work has been included in group and solo shows around the world, and installed within rehab clinics, hotels, social clubs, and even once on a broken down tug boat in Brooklyn.
Someone once described my work as “elegantly provocative” and I rather like that. What you see here is what I consider to be important, I’ll let you decide the rest.
About the Aesthesia Project:
ÆSTHESIA 2017-PresentBy Ashley G. GarnerAudio by ALURIAProduction Assistance by Alex Jaramillo, Nicole Absher, Christopher Brosius, TessaLiebman, Not Impossible, and Ben Cawiezell. ÆSTHESIA is a multi-sensory body of work that explores the therapeutic benefits of naturethrough sight, sound, scent, and taste.Studies have proven that when we spend 3-5 minutes simply looking at an image of nature,hearing their sounds, or smelling their aroma’s, blood pressure begins to lower, muscle tensionrelaxes, anxiety is alleviated and has shown to lead to shorter hospital stays, lower needs formedication, and help with depression.Can experiencing specific plants on different sensory levels such as sight, sound, scent, andtaste, have other physiological healing benefits? Do different plants heal us in different ways -such as the sound of Daisies, the sight of an Orchid, or the scent of a Morning Glory? If thesedifferent sensory experiences of each plant are combined, what would happen? This is whatÆSTHESIA explores through the lens of different plants, first beginning with six of the mostcommonly used flowers in the medicinal community: Lavender, Chamomile, Tiger Lily,Marigold, Wild Rose, and Echinacea.
