Artists who have participated in exhibitions at Griffin Gallery are featured below.

Sheila Wallis

Sheila Wallis works within the tradition of orthodox realist painting.

Drawing on her experience of growing up in Derry in Northern Ireland during the height of the Troubles, her work has a knowing political awareness that focuses on conflict, progress and human condition. In her recent work Wallis has employed seemingly disparate historical images as source material. Paintings made from Hollywood film stills, publicity shots and photojournalism are presented together to form unexpected narratives. Representations of the glamorous positioned against documentation of scientific experiments force a dialogue between public and private; science and art; fiction and reality; legacy and longevity.
