Looking forward to tonight’s private view for Violence of Flowers and seeing friends that I have not seen for far too long. If you can make it along I will be in the Castle from about 6pm – PV runs till they throw us out. In the studio I have worked on a few new pieces, recently finished are ‘Overgrown’ and ‘Take Cover’ and am working on a new piece which is now nearly complete – will be posting later. Hope to see you tonight #CultivateGallery #inkdrawing #carnegriffiths #Ov
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 an
I have taken a short video of the work on the mural / drawing so far at Norlington Road – I will be making a finished video and a short book of the completed piece but until then… A drawing made as part of the Leytonstone arts trail over a period of about 2 weeks spending 40 hours drawing, the piece is an unplanned organic drawing in Ink and tea which explores floral forms. Drawn in fountain pen ink and painted with various types of tea, specifically chai, Rooibos, blackcurr
New piece of work breaking down anatomical shapes into more abstract areas, not wishing to move away from the figurative but trying to incorporate successfully automatic and subconscious mark making alongside figurative drawing – starting to take shape I think.. #art #londonartist #LondonArtFair #MarkMaking #drawingssketches #londonart #Drawing #drip #drawings #leytonstone #teaandink #nature #Eyestorm #spill #Cupoftea #artwork #AutomaticDrawing
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.

Wasn’t aware of this geometrical design until today – going to use it as the starting point for 2 new pieces 1 small and one large quadrant piece to work alongside closer. I have photographed this piece with the inks still wet, this is exactly the effect that I am achieving working with Harwood King using varnish layers on the prints.. it helps to give a real vibrancy to the colour. #secret #WorkforSale #carnegriffiths #flower #floweroflife #Sketches #mathematics #giclee #wat
Finished work on the 1 metre square piece Closer, was a challenge working both in a quadrant format and also at that scale in pen ink and of course tea.
I have just had one of my pieces accepted for an exhibition at the William Morris Gallery this October, it is a piece that was inspired by my background as an embroidery designer so it was opportune that an exhibition should come along that is to feature works inspired by Morris. It’s great to have some work on show locally, This (and the current full moon) have spurred me on to creating a new piece, and I like the direction it is heading. The piece below is inspired / inf
I have been fortunate enough to secure the Luna Lounge venue for the Arts trail in Leytonstone which has distinct advantages for the lightbox work I am now producing – Firstly there are 3 or 4 large scale lightboxes already installed on the walls of the Luna Lounge which I can slip work into and secondly the lighting is perfect for seeing through the postcard boxes. I have now constructed 3 new lightboxes to house the postcard project and am embarking on a series of work exp
