Garner is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Indian tribe. He has been producing sculptures for 35 years and has been featured in dozens of public and private exhibitions nationwide including at the Chicago Children’s Museum.

“Little Rootie Tootie” is named after the great Thelonius Sphere Monk composition of the same name. It is an evocation of the muscular angles and curves of that piece. Garner’s work twists in all conceivable directions and manners, inviting the eyes to follow it from top to side to bottom to top. Defying all conception of shape “Little Rootie Tootie” moves through space as freely as an improvised jazz piano piece.
