Artists who have participated in exhibitions at Griffin Gallery are featured below.
Mathieu Dufois is an emerging artist who has already made his mark on the art world.
His distinctive work is largely inspired by the cinema of the 1950s and is a mix of black and white drawings, photography and installations. He works largely with Conte' a' Paris products, primarily the Pierre Noire and graphite lead pencils. During the course of his two week exhibition he will be giving several talks about his particular techniques.
'My work is formed through strong, passionate ties to the cinematic arts; specifically it is born from films of the ‘film noir’ period. In looking at certain cinematic sequences through the aspect of drawing, I undertake an exercise in re-appropriation, re-formation and re-cycling the images. My production takes different forms, such as large series of drawings, models and experimental films or animations.
The act of drawing is equal to an almost archaeological action which brings to the surface, like a magnetic force, the memories or emotional substance of a period forged by a number of cinematic works, buried now by lack of interest or indifference but which formed the collective conscience of several generations.'
