‘Emanate’ is a Giclée print by contemporary artist Carne Griffiths. Printed onto 310gsm Hahnemuhle German Etching Paper, the piece is from a limited edition of 12 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Carne Griffiths creates prints of stunning beauty, from his abstract-meets-figurative vision. With an impressive roll-call of clients - from Chanel to the Sultan of Oman - Griffiths’ work is informed by his background as a gold wire embroidery designer: delicate lines of fluidity course through his work, which he creates from various (and sometimes surprising) materials, including ink, graphite, brandy and whiskey.
‘Emanate’ uses an array of dynamic lines, shapes and colours to create the face of a woman in half-profile. Crafted from an explosive palette of aquamarine, earthy brown, and soft, salmon pink, the print is full of careful detail, each line brimming with a life of its own. Sketchy lines meet scratches, drips, splashes and daubs, to produce this striking example of the abstract shading into the figurative: a truly beautiful piece contemporary art.
