Just out of Reach by Carne Griffiths

I’m delighted to be launching a new 20×16″ print on Wednesday the 27th Jan, with Derbby.

Derbby have a unique price structure which works great, making the early prints in an edition extremely accessible.  The usual selling price of Derbby Prints is $149 but for the Flash Sale the price drops to $25.. and that’s where it gets interesting, each successive sale raises the price by $1 !

Derbby aren’t cutting corners however, the print is made on a bright white Epson archival paper at a heavy 330gsm! this is embossed with the Derbby logo and accompanied by an artists signature by way of a certificate applied to the reverse of the piece… this results in a clean ready to frame image.

The piece itself was created in January of 2016 and experiments with creating more layering and more detail than usual, I wanted to give Derbby an image that would translate well in the reduction to a print, making the detail finer and crisper.  Continuing on from the earlier piece this year entitled all I want is everything, the piece reflects on commercial desire, our relationship with nature, and the unattainable.   I’ve included some work in progress images below to show the process of making the work.

If you are interested, the original work will also be made available through Derbby via a unique bidding system.  Checkout www.derbby.com for more details.

Here’s a few pics of work from 2015 turned into a postcard set.

You can purchase the set online here

Each piece is printed onto 350gsm board and has a postcard layout on the reverse with details about the original piece.  The postcards form an edition of 3500 cards, each card is hand signed by my fair hand and editioned in the left hand corner in pencil.  Furthermore – you can choose a personalised hand drawn envelope for these postcards making them an ideal gift or stocking filler for xmas.  Thanks for following the blog and sorry I’ve been away so long 🙂2015 set smallString Theory PostcardFly PostcardRara Avis postcard

Its turning out to be a rollercoaster week – with great news hearing of sales of  The Harvest, The Vine, Nectar, Metamorphosis Strength and Comfort – thank you to Ink’d Gallery, Eyestorm, Art Republic and Opus – meanwhile in the studio work is building up quickly on ‘The Violence of Flowers’ a series of work which I am fully immersed in at the moment. This may have been the reason it hadn’t really sunk in that the studios where I work are being considered for redevelopment and a planning application slapped on the lamp-post outside the entrance. If things go according to (their) plan – Norlington road studios in Leyton will turn into a mews providing some nice new flats for the area, meanwhile a growing community of artists from the surrounding areas will be without studio space which is becoming increasingly scarce!! especially in E10/E11

This on the back of a wonderful Arts Trail Experience leaves a real bitter taste in the mouth… well I have decided that it’s something I will become actively involved in opposing – whether it means I have to find a new workplace or not the main thing is that life and the current project of work goes on for the time being and I intend to make the most of it. I have only released detail shots of the work so far and a couple of development pieces so I thought I would add one finished piece to the blog, it misrepresents the series slightly but it is the first piece to reintroduce portraiture to the series. The piece shown below is as yet untitled – it’s title will depend on the completed series of work but I think it reintroduces a bit of vigour to the drawn line – I hope you like it

I will be holding a small private preview of the series on the 27th of August in Leytonstone, and will be showing selected works as part of the E17 Arts Trail which begins on the 1st September. In the meantime I am looking for a venue to display the full collection of works towards the end of September… just need to find a gallery that would be interested in showing the series as a whole.

I have entered this piece in the Paris Showdown, apparently the top 128 entrants are able to enter the physical work into the Paris exhibition so fingers crossed, would love to show Parassita there. If you have the time you can vote for the piece here http://www.saatchionline.com/showdown/match/showdown/5/artist/75921/art/1231839

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.
