Who we love
Carne Griffiths’ compositions of tea ink and alcohol capture the emotional and technical. His work is a combination of both literal and abstract translation in response to images and situations encountered in daily life. Images are recorded in a dreamlike sense onto the page where physical boundaries are unimportant, inviting the viewer to share and explore this inner realm. We are pleased Carne is now a local as he has recently moved his studio from London to Sussex.
Who to watch
Brighton artist Dan Baldwin is set to conquer with his wonderful, intriguing works. His first solo show in New York, End of Innocence, was staged at the end of last year and was hugely successful, showing his most accomplished body of works to date. In his colourful works, Dan explores abstract and figurative painting to create a landscape that simultaneously reflects reality, the power of the imagination and the private, inner workings of his mind.
Something for the weekend
