Working in calligraphy ink and tea, the artist will create floral imagery connected with ideas of creation and evolution whilst exploring the interplay between artist as creator and the outside influences of chance and suggestion from viewers. Based heavily on floral forms the installation leads on from last year’s drawing made inside a house as part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail. A video of the finished installation is shown below.
Visitors to the gallery are requested to bring plants to the exhibition to create a central installation which will be used as inspiration for the drawing as well as writing suggestions for imagery to be included within the piece. A live broadcast of the event will be available at this website from the 1st March and also at the artist’s webpage http://www.carnegriffiths.com
