It’s been a busy couple of weeks with this project and that project, upcoming shows and opportunities but I’ve neglected the studio so I thought I’d post a work in progress and fill in a little of what shows are coming up in the month of October
Here’s an as yet untitled piece (I’ve got a couple of ideas for the title but undecided yet how it will finish) I’ve also been filming some work in the studio against my better judgement! but to use as promo for an upcoming show.. I’ve made a video of part of this work in progress which I will be uploading soon.
So apart from planning some work with local community projects, The Stone Space and helping Co-ordinate the Drawing Crowds exhibition with fellow artist El Bedlow, I have prepared work for upcoming shows and been fortunate enough to have work accepted with the following galleries.
Inkd Gallery – a fantastic space down on North Road in Brighton – They have just received ‘uprooted’ and ‘take cover’ (shown below). I am particularly pleased with the uprooted piece as it represents an area of drawing which I strive to bring into my work but is not something I can force… if you get a chance to pop into Inkd – ask to have a look at the piece – it may be tucked away in a drawer for safekeeping for now but I’m hoping it will grace their walls soon
Uprooted & Take Cover – now showing with Inkd Gallery
I will be participating in a number of shows coming up in October,
Multiplied contemporary editions fair at Christies with Eyestorm where I will be showing the ltd edition prints of Rose.
Then in mid October I will be showing some brand new pieces at an exhibition at the Hospital Club with West London Art Factory – put together by Jewel Goodby and featuring the following confirmed artists, Inkie / Carne Griffiths / Max Wiedemann / George Morton-Clarke / Ben Slow / Danny O’Connor / Fin Dac / Zeus / Cosmo Sarson / Milo / Warren J Fox / Jewel / Laura Tinald / Belinda Frikh / Joanna Scislowicz /
Then at the end of October I will be showing 6 original pieces with Eyestorm from the Violence of flowers at the Affordable Art Fair @ Hamspstead Heath….
Then there is a possibility of a solo show at the end of Oct too… but I’ll fill in more about that when I know what’s happening.
If you would like any more information about any of the shows or are interested in any of the work just drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to getting into the studio tomorrow!
Yesterday I took 5 new pieces down to Inkd gallery and talked about some of the new work. It was good to air the new pieces as there was a slight change in direction and the work was starting to focus solely on floral forms. I have recently received good feedback from some purely floral works, poppy and undergrowth especially, and I think it is this that has given me the impotus to move into this project without any portrtraiture or human elements both with more confidence and a renewed sense of energy.
It was surprising to react in such a strong way to what are essentially to me study drawings of wild flowers that were picked from the grounds of the studio at Norlington Road, but the reaction has reintroduced a vigorous line and mark making to my drawing that I felt had been missing from the initial pieces I made recently exploring bees… I learnt that sometimes it is good to follow this impulse and not tobe stubborn about the route that the work takes.
below are a few images of detail from the works which include partial studies of thistles roses and other wild flowers … I will be posting completed images of the work fairly soon when I have an idea how the project will develop. For now I can only say that these pieces are intense emotional responses to the plants and floral forms in front of me, hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them – Carne
