On Wednesday of this week I will be doing a live performance over at Debut Contemporary with Michelin Star Chef Nicola Batavia. Nicola is the owner of Casa Batavia in Notting Hill and specialises in creating unusual egg dishes – for the performance we will be combining calligraphy, eggs, tea and ink with culinary flair at the presentation of Debut’s Art School Awards at their Gallery in Notting Hill. If you are as intrigued as I am!, send an email over to email@example.com to get on the guest list – Wed 4th July from &pm..
This collaboration came about as a result of my work with Debut Contemporary and the collaboration with fashion brand JOYCE earlier in the year. I will be displaying a gift set of the work used by JOYCE which includes 5 printed metal eggs which were available in vending machines across Hong Kong as part of the ART-SPIRATIONS project, part of JOYCE’s continuing commitment to working creatively with artists.
2 for Joy
The newly created piece of work – 2 for Joy will also be on display at the gallery . The piece coincides with some monumental events in my personal life and I am delighted to be showing the piece with Debut Contemporary.
Hope you can join me there for a celebratory drink!
2 for Joy – Detail – Ink and Tea on Paper – showing from the 4th July at ebut Contemporary.
L’Art de la Radiance
I am delighted to announce that I have had 2 pieces of work selected for the continuing exhibition ‘L’Art de la Radiance’ curated by Alvin Goh in Hong Kong. The first exhibition was held in a 20,000 sq foot venue on
12nd April 2012 just for 1 night but due to overwhelming response, Cle de Peau Hong Kong have decided to extend the exhibition.
The re-run venue will be held at “The Space” http://www.thespace.hk/ from July 19-31. The work below will form part of the exhibition which also features the work of 21 Artists selected by Alvin Goh, the online catalogue of the exhibition is available here

’2 for Joy’ is now complete and cut from the board in the studio, so I am spending today catching up on some paperwork and arranging some of my giclee prints to go out to galleries in Brighton, Hastings and up to Scotland. Also preparing the 3rd piece in the series and working on some interesting commissions, including a new lightbox which I will be sharing soon.
Here are some pics of the finished work 2 for Joy with a couple of work in progress and detail shots taken along the way. The piece ’2 for Joy’ will form part of a series of 10 works over the course of this year.
Also here are some pics from the launch of the new t-shirt available from Twinne using the piece ‘Seed of life’
Apparently there was a hiccup with the ordering system but you can now buy the Tee’s here
The original artwork is also available for sale.
Here is the set of work that I have called ‘The Violence of Flowers’ – I hope you enjoy them
Undergrowth is an installation drawing made in ink and tea during the Leytonstone Arts Trail in 2011. The drawing consists of floral forms influenced by the plants surrounding the house which stretch along one side of the wall in the house. From the front door along the hallway, up the stairs and reaching up to the ceiling, the floral forms are a mixture of real and imaginary flowers. Amongst the flowers are a number of bees drawn which flow in an arc until they reach the hive. Represented in the drawing by a girl with outstretched hands from which drips of honey fall to the ground. If you would like to see the installation drawing which is based in Leytonstone East london – please contact email@example.com or visit http://www.carnegriffiths.com for more details.
Just finished this piece and pleased with the way the colour works with this type of tea. Also working the roots was a very fluid process, would enjoy making an abstract piece made up entirely of this type of form.
Wasn’t aware of this geometrical design until today – going to use it as the starting point for 2 new pieces 1 small and one large quadrant piece to work alongside closer.
I have photographed this piece with the inks still wet, this is exactly the effect that I am achieving working with Harwood King using varnish layers on the prints.. it helps to give a real vibrancy to the colour.
