Trouble by Carne Griffiths

Neon Tears by Carne Griffiths

Here’s what is happening from the studio, with exhibitions and upcoming projects.

This evening sees the launch of  The Stone Space’s One Day’s Walk exhibition.  The show features work from 13 artists reflecting on their beloved hometown or the place they grew up – It’s a great eclectic collection of work featuring plaster sculptures, oil paintings, charcoal and graphite drawings, photographs prints and drawings in ink and tea!!

If you can make it to Leytonstone tube station the Stone Space Gallery is just a stone’s throw along church lane and we’ll be there to welcome you with a nice glass of wine, beer or maybe even a cup of tea.. be there from 7pm

‘George’ by Jesus Coromina, ‘Tower Blocked’by Michele Fletcher and ‘Constellations 6’ by Gillian Swan

I will be showing the piece ‘The Green Man’ a drawing which serves to illustrate the influence of my Leytonstone’s natural surroundings on my drawing (as an avid cyclist the lure of epping forest is .  Most works in the exhibition are available for sale and all works have been reproduced as a postcard which are available to buy from the gallery for just £1 – all proceeds go to the running of the stone space gallery.

The Green Man, Ink and Tea on Paper

From the studio

Things are hotting up in the studio … literally – whilst work is complete on the first 2 of the series 1 for sorrow, I have begun to experiment with some new portraiture pieces.  These are with an aim to producing a new series of smaller works as part of the upcoming show at Ink’d Gallery this September.  Here’s a few snippets of what you might expect later in the year…

Collaborations..

Really looking forward to working with an East London Fashion house on the production of some garment fabrics inspired by drawings in ink and tea – the work will be playful, colourful and will mark a return for me into the area of textiles… after 12 years designing embroidery it’s nice to be working with fabrics again and I am feeling a draw to some more tactile elements in the work too! watch this space…

That’s all for now… thanks for reading.

I’m getting ready to show work in this year’s E17 Arts Trail.  I will be exhibiting a selection of work from the Violence of Flowers in the castle pub and will be bringing a portfolio of the remaining pieces on Thursday 8th for the private view. You will be able to pick up trail guides at the Castle Pub to see make your way around the 130 or so exhibitions which form the E17 Trail!!

Thanks to those of you who managed to come along to the preview in Leytonstone where the mural drawing undergrowth was displayed last week- if you were unable to make this show I do hope you’ll be able to join me on the 8th of September for a few drinks!

Also available at the castle will be a collection of postcards and giclee prints of work available to buy from £5 to £75 – Hope to see you during the Trail –

if you can’t make the show and are interested in the work, or prints they are of course available here.!!

Cheers – Carne

 

Experimenting with masked out shapes and bird forms. I have included the sketch and mid point work on this piece to give an idea of development.

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.

Finished work on the 1 metre square piece Closer, was a challenge working both in a quadrant format and also at that scale in pen ink and of course tea.
Closer illustrates our connection to nature as a two way relationship, our dependency and our appreciation

Goldleaf explores sacred geometry, the golden section and it’s link to floral forms. Ink and Tea on paper

Decided not to work too much into this, there was enough rose leaf and enough suggestion of the overall form to leave the outer pencil marks to describe the shape.  Again this piece is drawn from a reference image and has marked a departure from the automatic process, the leaves and foliage are all drawn from memory / free although I have been making studies inbetween large pieces.

This piece is worked in brown havana ink with blue waterman ink, tea and water on stretched bockingford watercolour paper.Rose - finished image
