Carne Griffiths ’ artwork is born from a love of drawing and the journey of creating an image on the page. Working primarily with calligraphy ink, graphite and liquids such as tea brandy, vodka and whisky, he draws and then manipulates the drawn line. After graduating from Maidstone college of art, Carne served an apprenticeship and worked as a gold wire embroidery designer for 12 years, hence floral pattern, repetition and flow play a large part in his work. Carne’s images explore both human and floral forms, figuratively and in an abstract sense.

Carne Griffiths 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.
