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.
After a short break in Thassos, Greece it has been nice to return to drawing in the studio and preparing for several group shows this summer. shown below are 2 pieces inspired by the recent break – firstly by a book I read whilst away and secondly by the variety of different forms of nature experienced.
