‘Reverie’ is a Giclée print by contemporary artist Carne Griffiths. Printed onto Hahnemuhle German Etching Paper with hand-torn edges, 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.
‘Reverie’ 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 and earthy brown, Griffiths has weaved the delicate visage from soft swathes of intricately illustrated foliage, each line brimming with a life of its own.
Sketchy lines meet drips, splashes, and daubs, to produce this striking example of the abstract shading into the figurative: a truly beautiful piece of contemporary art.
