Eden by Carne Griffiths

The Stone Space is pleased to present a live drawing event ‘EDEN’ by artist Carne Griffiths.
Thurs 1st March from 2pm, – Sun 11th March 4pm
Eden by Carne Griffiths

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

On 25th February a preview event for the exhibition took place at Debut Contemporary. Images from the presentation and live drawing event can be found here

Carne’s work has featured recently at the London Original Print Fair, Royal Academy, London Art Fair
and overseas at Urban in Ibiza 2011 and Arts After Dark, New Orleans 2010. The artist is currently working closely with West London gallery Debut Contemporary, as well as Eyestorm, Art Republic, Opus and Ink-d Gallery in Brighton where he will be holding a solo show later in 2012.
