Working Artistically With What You Have
The work of Carne Griffith.
As an artist, I often find that the materials that I work with dictate the work’s overall composition and how it turns out. I work with found objects a lot, and try to follow their natural contours and shapes to create works of art that reflect the media’s natural properties. This is how it works with artist, Carne Griffiths, from London, whose works (below) reflect a fascination with automatic drawing, optics and a clear love of nature and floral pattern. These pieces are worked in a combination of liquids from coffee to gin and vodka, a range of herbal teas and alcohol, coupled with calligraphic drawing marks and hand embroidered elements. Aren’t they magnificent?!
