Unwrapped – Factory Project – Multiplied

This Thursday sees the private view for 3 exhibitions I have been lucky enough to be involved with.

I was invited by Jewel of West london Art Factory to submit 4 works for their show at the Hospital Club – so 4 brand new original pieces – not exhibited before will be showing from the 13th October, looking forward to seeing the range of works on offer, if you want to get over to see them it’s an open invite and free to see, just turn up between 11am and 4pm on the 13th or 11am – 7pm on the 14th-16th October

Multiplied Contemporary Editions, with Eyestorm Gallery showing the print of Rose – produced by Harwood King

“Christie’s is delighted to announce Multiplied – an exciting new fair in the field of contemporary art. The fair will be held during the week of the Frieze Art Fair, 15-18th October, providing a platform to promote emerging talent in two and three-dimensional contemporary editions. Christie’s has invited over thirty of the most exciting galleries to showcase a selection of the most challenging, cutting-edge work being produced today. Exhibiting a wide range of publishers under one roof, Christie’s aim to help them promote their businesses and the artistic talent that they support.”

And last but by no means least… Unwrapped

 

I have 3 new pieces in Leytonstone’s newest  gallery The Stone Space.  The first exhibition in the space presents the work of 10 contemporary artists in reponse to the theme Unwrapped.
The private View runs from 7-9:30pm this Thursday – more info here

These are new works, influenced by william Morris wallpaper designs that peel back the gallery walls to reveal the undergrowth that was once in its place.
example shown below is called Undergrowth (Unwrapped)

Meanwhile I am busy in the studio preparing for a solo show coming in November at Gallery 90, more details to follow shortly, and tomorrow I will be dropping 6 new framed pieces of work with Eyestorm for the Hampstead Affordable Art Fair.

 

 

Studio Time

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

Opus have requested 4 pieces from the violence of flowers series, the works Crushed, Taunted, Torn and Smother are available online from their website now.

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 carne@carnegriffiths.com

 

Looking forward to getting into the studio tomorrow!
