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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

After a rather sleepy December and some lovely time spent with friends and family, a little break from the stone space gallery that I have some involvement with and a general look back over the last year, I started getting ready to ease into 2012 and plan some new works in the studio. Before I get down to the New Year sort out – here are a list of upcoming events that I will be attending / showing work at in Jan/Feb/March
The London Art Fair with Opus stand G35, 18-22 Jan
I will be showing 6 framed works with Opus over the duration of the show. Some new pieces previously unreleased and some represented pieces from 2011, I am really excited to be involved with the LAF again this year and am looking forward to seeing the broad spectrum of work to be found there – if you would like to come and see my work at the LAF please contact Opus for a a complimentary, their website can be found here ( opus )
Art For Heart’s Sake
I have been invited by Sophie Wharmby from Art For Heart’s Sake to donate a work for Auction at their exhibition which will run from 10th – 17th February 2012.
Art for Heart’s Sake is a social enterprise that seeks to raise awareness and encourage charitable donation through creative engagement. The event has been created in partnership with Hipstamatic, and is sponsored by Kids Company and EDC and will feature 100 photos, (selected from a submission of over 5000!) as well as a selection of creative works from supporting artists all available for auction over the course of the exhibition. I would love to see the piece raise money at the auction so if you are interested in any of my work and would like to support this great cause please contact myself or Sophie through the Art for Heart’s Sake website http://www.artforheartssake.co.uk/
E D E N
Looking ahead to March, I am beginning to plan an installation drawing entitled eden which will take place from the 1-11 March 2012, The Stone Space, in Leytonstone. Here is the text from The Stone Space site where more information about their programme of exhibitions can be found for 2012.
The Stone Space is pleased to present the live drawing event ‘E D E N’ by artist Carne Griffiths. Created in calligraphy ink and tea, EDEN will employ imagery connected with creation and evolution whilst exploring the interplay between artist as creator and the outside influences of chance and suggestion from viewers.
Visitors to the gallery are encouraged to bring plants to the exhibition, to create a central installation which will be used as inspiration for the drawing, as well as write suggestions for imagery to be included within the piece. A live broadcast of the event will be available at the website http://www.carnegriffiths.com and http://www.thestonespace.com
So I already have plenty to look forward to in terms of creating and showing new work and am now keen to get into the studio to explore work for the exhibition ‘The Wing Assignament‘ which is being curated by a good friend from Maidstone College of Art.
Hope to see you at the LAF or sooner!

Looking forward to tonight’s private view for Violence of Flowers and seeing friends that I have not seen for far too long. If you can make it along I will be in the Castle from about 6pm – PV runs till they throw us out.
In the studio I have worked on a few new pieces, recently finished are ‘Overgrown’ and ‘Take Cover’ and am working on a new piece which is now nearly complete – will be posting later.
Hope to see you tonight
This Thursday is the preview for Violence of Flowers at the Castle Pub in E17, I have been in the castle for a couple of days now making sure that the food and the beer is up to standard and can happily report that both are ready for consumption by all. If you are heading from central London grab the victoria line to Walthamstow – The castle is a 10 minute walk from there. I have been juggling the work that I will be showing in this show and have finally decided on a set of 7 pieces which reflect the entire collection. I will also have the other pieces from the show in the portfolio so you will be able to get an idea of the full body of work.
Also starting this thursday – is the official opening of the Cultivate Gallery on Vyner street I will be showing Uprooted alongside some great work from artists Sean Worrall (also Gallery Coordinator), David Agenjo, Infinity Bunce, Steven Rawlings, Emma Harvey, Danielle Hodson, Gaia and Joanna Rose Tidy.
