Tea-Vodka-Whiskey: Paintings by Carne Griffiths

These paintings made by Carne Griffiths are so raw and glamourous at the same time. There is clearly an element of nature and the fact that he uses various liquids such as whiskey, vodka, tea and brandy to create his art, shows the connection with everything organic.

According to Carne’s website-

Carne’s images explore both human and floral forms, figuratively and in an abstract sense. He is fascinated by the flow of line and the ‘invisible lines’ that connect us to the natural world. These may be considered lines of energy or spiritual connections between ourselves and our surroundings and his work is often an emotional response to images and situations encountered in daily life. These daily images are recorded in a dream like sense onto the page where physical boundaries are no longer important. Carne’s work takes us on a journey of escapism, often focusing on scenes of awe and wonderment, they offer a sense of abandonment to the artist and to the viewer an invitation to share and explore this inner realm.

40 paintings from Carne’s series titled “Fragments” are displayed at the Ink-d Gallery in Brighton until Saturday 6th October, 2012. You can visit Ink-d Gallery’s website for more information.
