Folk artist Edward Larson has not forgotten the appeal of the simply stated. His works of art are characterized by bright, primary colors that tap into our child-like sensibility. A resourceful recycling of materials like wooden fruit crates, scrap metals and marbles add charm to his unique creatures. Larson is a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship artist. He has been featured in many group shows at such venues as the Museum of American Folk Art, New York, NY; the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institute, Washington, DC; and the NEA Museum School of Art, Greenville, NC. The artist makes his home in New Mexico (Thanks to the Tory Folliard Gallery).
